This data collection is one of the earlier "resident places" surveys in the National Nursing Home Survey series. Basic information about nursing homes and their residents and discharges is included in this survey. The Facility Questionnaire contains variables on number of patients, number receiving nursing care, inpatient days of care, admissions, live discharges, place of discharge, deceased discharges, number of beds, total number of employees, and services provided. The Resident Questionnaire includes information about the resident's age, sex, race, marital status, date of admission, diagnoses, services received, aids used, mobility, hearing, vision, charges for care, and sources of payment.
