By 2030, at least 4.5 million U.S. Hispanics will require nursing home care due to dementia and chronic disease. Despite the significance of nutrition's role in elder health, malnutrition has not been studied in controlled empirical investigations of such residents. A valid instrument for measuring food and food service satisfaction for Spanish-speaking nursing home residents is urgently needed. This article is to report on pilot testing of such an instrument with the ultimate aim of generating theory-based nursing interventions to increase resident food satisfaction, food intake, and subsequent nutrition status.
