Abstract

Given the continuing growth of the elderly population in the UK and proposed changes to the long-term care payment system, it is important to find a tool that accurately identifies the way registered general nursing (RGN) care time is made available to care home residents. The Joseph Rowntree Foundation commissioned this research project to explore whether a combination of the Minimum Data Set/Resident Assessment Instrument (MDS/RAI) and Resource Utilisation Groups version 3 (RUG-111) systems could do this. The research included both quantitative and qualitative components. The quantitative study included assessments of residents' care needs and recorded the time spent by registered nurses and other care staff in caring for these residents. The qualitative study was based on interviews held with registered nurses and care assistant staff.
