  • Rural-Urban Differences in Nursing Home Admissions, Service Usage and Discharge
    An in-depth examination of rural-urban differences in recent nursing home first admissions, their service utilization patterns, and their discharge status over 12 months will be conducted to determine whether persons from rural areas admitted to rural nursing homes have higher functioning, receive fewer special nursing home services, and remain in care longer than rural admissions to urban nursing homes, urban admissions to urban nursing homes, or urban admission to rural nursing homes.
