AbstractWe evaluated the degree to which contextual isolation in nursing home residents with Alzheimer's disease and related dementias is associated with documented pain using the Minimum Data Set 3.0, a comprehensive resident assessment required of all nursing home residents in the United States. Contextual isolation was defined as having a socially salient characteristic (demographics, habits and interests, and clinical and care dimensions) shared by fewer than 20% of other residents in the same nursing home. Thirteen percent were contextually isolated on multiple characteristics. Among residents self-reporting pain, residents contextually isolated with respect to multiple characteristics were 8% more likely (95% confidence interval: 7% to 9%) to have pain relative to residents who were not contextually isolated on any characteristics. Long-stay nursing home residents with ADRD who live in settings where they were contextually isolated were more likely to have pain relative to those without contextually isolation on any characteristic.
