In this investigation, we examine deficiency citations for administration in nursing homes. Administration is defined as the top managers in each facility, consisting of the nursing home administrator & director of nursing. We examine the association between deficiency citations for administration (indicating poor administration practices) & quality of care. Regulators, as well as consumers, are interested in this association. Data used came from the 1996-2004 Online Survey, Certification & Recording (OSCAR) data, representing approximately 17,000 facilities per year. We find that 5% of facilities received a deficiency citation for administration, & lower facility quality is associated with these administration deficiency citations. Tables, References.
