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.
