The purpose of this study was to examine if there was a present correlation the quality of care a resident in a long-term care facility received and the type of room they resided in. The researcher conducted a quantitative, cross-sectional research study of direct care healthcare providers (n=77) in four long-term care facilities in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia through the documentation of a paper survey. The survey questions were adapted from Nursing Home Survey on Patient Safety Culture and participants responded according to their personal habits regarding the quality of care they gave residents and feelings about their place of employment. Results showed no statistically significant conclusions between the quality of care a resident of a long-term care facility received and the type of room they resided in.
