Abstract

As part of a larger study that investigated the social, cultural, clinical, and environmental factors that influenced nutritional intake in two proprietary nursing homes, 82 of 100 residents who were not eating well receiveda bedside dysphagia screening evaluation by a speech pathologist. This article reports on the dysphagia evaluation results and the consequences of swallowing disorders for nursing home residents. Forty-five of the 82 residents (55%) had some degree of dysphagia, ranging from mild to profound, but only 10 of these 45 residents (22%) had been referred for a dysphagia evaluation. Unrecognized and unmanaged dysphagia may lead to dehydration, malnutrition, aspiration pneumonia, and asphyxiation. Assessment and management ofdysphagia also are discussed.
