Infographic for Maryland Nursing Homes Psychiatric Health: April 2019

Psych360 recently created and launched an infographic that displays data measuring the average percentage of incidents experienced by residents in a Nursing Home including a Skilled Nursing Facility. This infographic offers a tool for Skilled Nursing Facilities to compare how they rank against averages for the state of Maryland and national averages in multiple categories of care. The information displayed–sourced from medicare.gov–provides an easy to read view of averages for both short-term and long-term residents. The infographic will be updated when new data becomes available.
