Abstract

The purpose of this article is to describe nutritional problems that may be predictive of poor resident outcomes in nursing homes. In a recent study, seven resident-focused problems or categories that may affect malnutrition and/or food intake were identified (Crogan and Alvine, 2006; Crogan et al., 2007). Regression analysis found that three of seven resident-focused problems were predictive of low serum prealbumin levels, impaired functional status and improved quality of life.
