Slide 6. Nursing Home SOPS Development

A national technical assistance conference call conducted on March 31, 2010, provides users with an overview of the development of the survey. In addition, two professionals share their success and challenges in survey administration from both a regional perspective and an individual nursing home, and discuss how to maximize survey response and use survey results to develop action plans to target safety culture improvement initiatives. This is one of the sets of speaker slides from the call.

Text Description is below the image.

  • Many nursing-home (NH) staff have lower education/reading levels; language issues:
    • Used simple language in survey items (final survey has Flesch-Kincaid score 5.3 grade reading level).
    • Kept survey item wording relatively short.
    • Focused on entire NH rather than on "units" or "departments."
