CMS Nursing Home Compendium: 2008
This is the sixth edition of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS) annual Nursing Home Data Compendium. The compendium contains figures and tables presenting data on all residents in Medicare- and Medicaid-certified nursing homes in the United States. A series of graphs and maps highlights some of the most interesting data, while detailed data are available in accompanying tables. The tables and figures in this volume were compiled from CMS survey and certification administrative data and nursing home clinical data contained in the Minimum Data Set (MDS).
