Abstract

In a pilot study of two nursing homes serving primarily different ethnic groups, differences were found in the importance black patients and their relatives attached to the ethnic character of the institution compared with respondents in a Japanese home. The latter placed more emphasis on all aspects of ethnic programming and homogeneity of patients and staff. The blacks placed more emphasis on access to family than on ethnic orientation per se. 1983 The American Geriatrics Society
