  • Description:
    OBJECTIVE: The 1995 National Nursing Home Survey (NNHS) was conducted to collect data on nursing homes and their current residents. This report presents detailed data on the characteristics of the nursing homes including ownership, certification, bed size, location, affiliation, and services provided. Data on current residents are presented by basic demographics, living arrangement prior to admission, functional status, and other health and personal characteristics of the residents.

    METHODS: The 1995 NNHS is a sample survey consisting of a two-stage design with a probability sample of 1,500 nursing facilities in the first stage and up to six current residents from each facility in the second stage.

    RESULTS: About 1.5 million residents were receiving care in an estimated 16,700 nursing homes in 1995. Nearly 1.8 million beds were available and facilities operated at about 87 percent of their capacity. Nearly 90 percent of the residents were 65 years and over. They were predominantly female and white with a large portion needing assistance in the activities of daily living (ADL's) and instrumental activities of daily living (IADL's).
