Although little is known about nutrition care for Hispanic older adults in nursing homes, soon at least 4.5 million will reside there because of chronic disease. The purpose of this pilot study was to test the internal consistency reliability of a food and food service satisfaction instrument, the Food Expectations-Long Term Care Spanish (FoodEx-LTCSp) questionnaire with nursing home residents and to examine relationships between satisfaction and food intake, serum prealbumin, and functional status. Only two FoodEx-LTCSp subscales, Cooking Good Food and Providing Food Service, were significantly correlated with one another (r = 0.624, p = 0.002). No significant correlations were found between prealbumin and food intake (perhaps related to the small sample and the short duration of food weight measurement) or between prealbumin and functional status, and no significant difference was found in the subscales of Enjoying Food and Food Service and Exercising Choice. Additional qualitative work may be needed with Hispanic residents to examine items that evolved from interview data obtained from an Anglo population.
