Abstract

In recent decades, health care has seen the introduction of a greater number of corporate and managerial practices with the intended purpose of improving the organization and delivery of services (Scott et al. 2000). Although the spread of managerial logic has been slower among nursing homes, recent growth of large facilities and corporate-owned facilities has helped introduce administrative processes into this sector (Kitchener and Harrington 2004). Managerial practices are tools for improving efficiency and effectiveness, but they also play an important role institutionalizing authority and influencing external stakeholders (Scott et al. 2000). In this study, we examine how facility quality and structural characteristics affect both internal uses of quality information and attempts to influence external stakeholders’ views of quality in the nursing home industry.
