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. Race/ethnicity categories exclude records with missing values.

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