Mental illness in nursing homes.
This report presents statistics on residents of nursing homes who had at least one condition that can be classified as a mental illness. Data for this major subgroup of nursing home residents are presented by length of stay since admission, source of payment in the month before the survey, functional dependencies in the activities of daily living, usual living arrangements prior to admission, and reasons for admission, according to major demographic and facility characteristics. This report also includes selected comparisons between residents with and without mental disorders. Estimates are based on data collected in the 1985 National Nursing Home Survey.
