Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a progressive, incurable respiratory disorder characterized by airflow obstruction. It is important to understand every aspect of this debilitating disease and follow clear protocols in order to provide effective care.
COPD encompasses emphysema, chronic bronchitis, irreversible asthma, and some forms of bronchiectasis. Cigarette smoking is the main cause of COPD, although air pollution and occupational dusts are also common causes.
The CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics has begun fielding the second wave of the National Study of Long-Term Care Providers (NSLTCP), a biennial national study of the major sectors of paid, regulated providers of long-term care services. This data collection effort includes a representative sample of assisted living and similar residential care communities across the country. Data collection started in June 2014, and will continue through December 2014.
The following shows the most frequently cited residential tags for June 2014.
