Abstract

This article presents the results of a systematic review of five years of health services research found in nursing home studies published in three major geriatric journals. This review indicates that very little services research has been undertaken in nursing home settings. The small amount of quantitative, empirical research that has been published has suffered from research design, method, and analytic shortcomings. Nursing home research in at least one federal agency has experienced worse than average funding and disapproval rates. The implications of this review are discussed, and recommendations are made for advancing this important area of study.
