Long-Term Care in Small Rural Hospitals.
Bowlyow, Joyce E.
Gerontologist, v29 n1 p81-85 Feb 1989
Compared small rural hospitals with long-term care units to those without units. Found both hospital and community differences. Hospitals with such units were smaller and differed in length of stay, personnel, and expenses. Their counties were smaller in population and less urban, but did not have proportionally more elderly or different indicators of economic stability. (Author)
