by DeMary, Thomas Dennis, D.H.A., UNIVERSITY OF PHOENIX, 2008, 124 pages; 3327211


The purpose of this quantitative correlational research study, using the Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire, was to determine whether a relationship existed between the leadership styles of nursing home administrators and the quality of care provided in nursing homes. The sample consisted of 31 Genesis Health Care Corporation nursing home administrators in the northeastern region of the United States. The analyses of data were performed through a descriptive and inferential statistical analysis. Results of these data analyses concluded that no statistical significance existed in the study between the leadership styles of nursing home administrators and the quality of care. Recommendations are made to examine future variations in methodology to determine whether leadership styles of nursing home administrators are related to quality of care in nursing homes.
