a. High-risk residents are those who are in a coma, do not get the nutrients needed to maintain good skin health, or cannot change position on their own. Long-stay residents typically enter a nursing facility because they can no longer care for themselves at home. They tend to stay in the facility for several months or years.

b. Data reflect care for the third quarter of each calendar year.

c. Age, gender, and race/ethnicity categories exclude records with missing values.
