Retsinas, Joan; And Others
International Journal of Aging and Human Development, v28 n3 p175-83 1989
Although many elderly people live for years in nursing homes, death certificates routinely obliterate nursing home residence. Data from records of 1 proprietary nursing home showed that of 128 residents, from 45 percent to 66 percent could be classified as permanent residents, depending on definition. Death certificates for those 128 residents listed nursing home as residence for 24 percent. (Author/NB)
