Glossary Definition

Last Updated: 2013-10-30


This indicator measures the minimum length of time (in years) that 50% of all PCH residents age 75 and older spent in PCHs before leaving the facility, according to their level of care on admission; i.e., half of PCH residents spent less than this amount of time in the PCH, and half spent longer. Level 1 represents the lowest level of need and Level 4 represents the highest. Levels 2 and 3 are stratified into residents whose assessment indicated a need for close supervision due to possible behavioural issues (2Y or 3Y) and those who did not (2N or 3N). Median values are calculated for two two-year periods for comparison, and are adjusted for age, sex, RHA, and time period.
