Description:
   This report presents information concerning expenses (total payments received for care, defined more fully in the section "Definitions of Terms") and sources of payment for nursing homes for 1987 and 1996. A nursing home was defined as having at least three beds, being either certified by Medicare or Medicaid or licensed by a government agency as a nursing home, and providing 24-hour skilled nursing care. Some other surveys, including the National Nursing Home Survey, conducted by the National Center for Health Statistics, used a broader definition of nursing home that does not require the facility to provide round-the-clock nursing care (Strahan, 1987 and 1997).
