Description

The Department of Health requires nursing homes to complete electronic filing of each facility's licensed nursing home beds and availability by bed category on a weekly basis. All nursing homes are requested to submit their Weekly Bed Census between Wednesday and Friday of each week, based on the census at 12:00 AM on Wednesday night. The Nursing Home Census- Historic data is the most comprehensive nursing home data available and is suitable for trending. Available Bed and Occupancy information is self-reported, and is not audited by the NYSDOH. For more information, check out http://nursinghomes.nyhealth.gov/, or go to the "About" tab.

Notes
Notes
The survey has allowed the nursing home surveillance program to: 1.) Improve the coordination of nursing home placements in the event of a closure or emergency situation within a community; and 2.) Create a consistent and efficient mechanism for long term care stakeholders to collect and report on nursing home bed availability. Researchers may use the data to help assist in evaluating: 1.) Occupancy Rates by Region/County; 2.) Bed Availability; and 3.) Evaluate Bed and Specialty Bed Needs.
