Malnutrition is associated with a range of poor health outcomes in long-term care facilities (LTCFs).1,2 Pooled analyses of LTCF data indicate 52% (range 0%–82%) of residents may be malnourished when screened using the Mini-Nutritional Assessment (MNA).3 Malnutrition is associated with a higher risk of macronutrient and micronutrient deficiencies in LTCFs.4,5 Evidence for multivitamin and mineral supplements is mainly limited to residents with established micronutrient deficiencies. A recent systematic review reported 2.7% to 68.3% of residents use multivitamin and mineral supplements.
