Zeitschrift für Gerontologie und Geriatrie 36(4): 260-265

The main objective of the study was to examine the prevalence of problems and resources of an unselected cohort of nursing home residents. The sample includes residents (n = 769) of an urban area in Southern Germany. The assessment definitions were used according to the Minimum Data Set of the Resident Assessment Instruments (Version 2.0). Results The mean age was 84.2 years, 608 of the residents were female. Dementia (446) and stroke (185) were the most common main diagnosis. Syndrome prevalences are reported for depressive symptoms (323), mobility impairments (608), urinary incontinence (461), decubitus (54), use of restraints (54), disruptive behavior (185), psychopharmacy (377), severe visual impairment (123) and severe hearing impairment (123).
