dc.description.abstract A survey of nursing homes was conducted in 2006 to evaluate a number of facility-specific characteristics including worker injury rates. The nursing home worker injury rate was 6.6 per 100 workers with higher injury rates observed in larger facilities, homes that were part of chains and homes with a higher proportion of wheelchair bound residents. A broad range of patient-transfer safety equipment was observed to be in use; however, the presence of these devices were not predictive of lower worker injury rates. en
