a High-risk residents 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 are no longer able to 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 Excludes records with unknown age, gender, or race/ethnicity.

Key: AI/AN: American Indian or Alaska Native; API: Asian or Pacific Islander; SE: standard error.
