Psych360 has revisited its nursing home infographic to update the statistics for October. This infographic displays the average percentage of incidents experienced by residents of Nursing Homes, including Skilled Nursing Facilities. Psych360 hopes this will be used as a tool for Long Term Care facilities to compare where they stand against both the national averages and the averages for the state of Maryland. All of the data displayed on the infographic is sourced from medicare.gov and is presented in an easy-to-read view of both long- and short-term residents. It will continue to be updated as new data becomes available.
