Abstract

OBJECTIVE: Use three types of functional ability as predictors of nursing home patient outcomes. DESIGN: Best-subsets regression analysis. SETTING: 10 nursing homes. RESULTS: Initial functional ability was the most important predictor. Organizational variables such as workload, stress, and morale also explained some of the variance in patient outcomes. Characteristics of organizational structure predicted outcomes as well as employee self-reports and could be substituted for them without substantially reducing the explained variance. CONCLUSION: Future research projects should explore the causal relationship between structure and outcomes.
