Description

Data on the health care characteristics of care home residents from the annual adult Care Home Census, aggregated to council level and Scotland level. The Care Home Census dataset includes statistics on Care Home residents at a snapshot date (31 March) as well as admissions, discharges and deaths during each financial year.

Please note that in some cases clients may fall in more than one category within the same period, therefore, the totals for smaller categories may not always add up to the 'total' category.

All publications and supporting material to this topic area can be found on the ISD Scotland Website. These statistics are also available for download from the NHS Scotland Open Data portal, along with other health and care data.

The data was collected as a part of the annual Scottish Care Home Census. It was intended to cover all adult care home establishments that are registered with the Care Inspectorate.

Confidentiality Policy

The following disclosure control methods have been applied to the data, in order to protect confidentiality: ISD protocol on Statistical Disclosure Protocol and the Scottish Government’s privacy notice.

Quality Management

The Care Home Census is a National Statistics publication. National Statistics status means that the official statistics meet the highest standards of trustworthiness, quality and public value. They comply with the Code of Practice for statistics and are awarded National Statistics status following an assessment by the UK Statistics Authority’s regulatory arm. The Authority considers whether the statistics meet the highest standards of Code compliance, including the value they add to public decisions and debate.

Accuracy and Reliability

The Care Inspectorate's eForms system automatically validates some of the data submitted by care homes. E.g. a care home cannot submit data unless the number of residents at the start of the financial year equals the number of residents at the end of the financial year plus the number of admissions during the financial year, minus the number of deaths and discharges during the financial year. However there are known issues with the data, e.g. discharge dates are not always recorded (in part 2 of the census which asks for data at individual long stay resident level), and so some deceased residents and some residents who were discharged alive, are incorrectly included. This was discovered for the first time when ISD CHI-seeded the 2017 care home census individual level long stay resident records then matched them to death dates from National Records Scotland.

Coherence and Comparability

These statistics are also available for download from the NHS Scotland Open Data portal, along with other health and care data.

Accessibility and Clarity

Please see the Care Home Census data supplier guidance letter for definitions of terms used in the Care Home Census.

Long Stay Residents are those whose intention when admitted to an adult care home was to stay there for more than six weeks, regardless of how long they actually stay. Residents whose intention when admitted to an adult care home was to stay there for fewer than six weeks are counted as Short Stay Residents, and the reason for the short stay was not for respite relief. If a resident stays for longer than 6 weeks they are counted as a long stay resident instead. Residents who stay in an adult care home to provide respite or holiday relief to them and/or their carer are Respite Residents. A period of respite is normally one night or one weekend or a few weeks at most.

Relevance

The statistics are used by the Scottish Government, local authorities, private and voluntary service providers, academics and members of the public to get a clear picture of care home provision across Scotland and to plan the provision of care home places in the future.

A short summary report is available on the uses of the Care Home Census data.
