Abstract [en]

This study examined how patient autonomy is associated with the organizational environment in nursing homes, particularly the organizational climate, organization of work and selected staff characteristics, such as age and experience of health care. Staff from 13 nursing homes in the county of Stockholm, Sweden, were included. The organizational climate was described by staff from two of the nursing homes that, on the basis of staff judgement, were rated as creative, and from two of the nursing homes that were rated as lacking innovation. Regarding organization of work, which included the number of patients who required to be fed, together with the incidence of pressure sores and indwelling urinary catheters, there appeared to be no difference in care from both types of nursing home. The statistical analyses showed that nursing homes characterized as significantly creative supported patient autonomy to a high degree, and that the staff's experience with health care was associated with the organizational climate.
