Psychiatric News (11/2) reports, “The frequency of schizophrenia diagnoses in U.S. nursing home residents with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias rose between 2011 and 2017,” with “Black nursing home residents” experiencing “a greater increase in the likelihood of being diagnosed with schizophrenia than white nursing home residents, even if they received care in the same nursing home,” investigators concluded after analyzing information from “the Minimum Data Set (captures information about diagnoses of psychiatric disorders and other conditions) and the Master Beneficiary Summary File (captures demographic information for residents in Medicare- and/or Medicaid-certified nursing homes).” The findings were published online Oct. 26 ahead of print in the American Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry.
