Nursing home work environment characteristics: associated outcomes in psychosocial care.

Bonifas RP - Health Care Financ Rev (2008)

Bottom Line: This study combines data from a survey of facility social services directors in Washington State with State inspection outcomes from the Online Survey Certification Reporting database.Logistic regression is used to examine how facility structure and facility culture impact receipt of a survey inspection deficiency in medically-related social services.Results indicate that non-metropolitan location and larger caseload size are the strongest predictors of receiving such a deficiency

ABSTRACT
Little is known about how work environment characteristics influence social services professionals' ability to deliver effective psychosocial services in skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) and how such influence translates into resident-centered outcomes. This study combines data from a survey of facility social services directors in Washington State with State inspection outcomes from the Online Survey Certification Reporting database. Logistic regression is used to examine how facility structure and facility culture impact receipt of a survey inspection deficiency in medically-related social services. Results indicate that non-metropolitan location and larger caseload size are the strongest predictors of receiving such a deficiency

f1-hcfr-30-02-019: Conceptual Model: Relationship Between Work Enviroment Characteristics and Resident-Centered Outcomes

Mentions: There are several survey deficiency categories that potentially relate to psychosocial care; however one category is particularly relevant for the current study in that it examines the broadest range of psychosocial services and associated resident psychosocial needs: medically-related social services. This regulatory requirement dictates that facilities provide medically-related social services to attain or maintain the highest practicable physical, mental, and psychosocial well-being of each resident. As such, it provides a valuable proxy for capturing effective psychosocial care. The various services comprising medically-related social services are listed in Table 1. The overall model guiding this research study, featuring relevant independent variables, is depicted in Figure 1.
