This article describes ten dining room problems, identified in a nursing home study, that needed quality improvement, as well as six quality practices suggested for implementation. These six quality practices provide the basis for an excellent eating experience characterized by a home-like atmosphere, high levels of staff-resident interaction, and increased attention to safety and ethical issues. The six practices also could serve as the foundation for a facility-wide, cost-effective, quality improvement program.
