    There are two errors in this commentary. One, it's \"Minimum\" Data Set, not \"Minimal\" Data Set. The relevant article does reference the Minimum Data Set. I wonder if the author has ever reviewed the MDS of a nursing home resident. There is actually an assessment, albeit a limited one, within the MDS of preferred intensity of care in Section A.Two, the footnote is wrong here: \"A somewhat related study by Neuman et al\"; footnote 5 is the NEJM article, not the JAMA study which is footnote 6.
