Approximately, one-half of RCFs were small facilities with 4-10 beds (50%) (Figure 1). The rest were medium facilities with 11-25 beds (16%), large facilities with 26-100 beds (28%), and extra large facilities with more than 100 beds (7%).
When the number of residents that RCFs were serving at the time of interview was compared by facility size, small facilities were found to serve 10% of all residents in RCFs and medium facilities served 9% of residents, while large RCFs served 52% of all residents in RCFs and extra large RCFs served 29%.
