A program using a team consisting of a nurse practitioner and a social worker to provide care for nursing-home patients was established. An important feature is the use of a specially designed problem-oriented record. The project disclosed a number of current deficiencies in nursing-home care and demonstrated ways to remedy many of these. The overall cost of the project was offset by the savings realized from reduced hospitalization and related medical costs.
