Abstract

This research studied 12 507 residents in 1174 nursing homes from the 2004 National Nursing Home Survey. A multinomial logistic regression model was used to predict risk-Adjusted probabilities of pressure ulcers with 4 stages. A medical director or a director of nursing on board reduced the odds of ulcers. Facilities offering clusters of beds for rehabilitation and special care programs for hospice care or behavior problems reduced the odds of stage IV ulcers.
