This presentation speaks to the challenges of measuring quality of nursing care in an institutional setting in a developing country. This study used the Observable Indicators of Nursing Home Quality Care Instruments (OINHCQI) to determine the physical environment and direct care characteristics of three elder care facilities in Belize. Although this instrument has demonstrated reliability and validity in western cultures, this tool?s use in a developing country is novel. The values of the Belizean culture were found to be consistent with and measurable by the indicator items of the OINHCQI. The initial findings of this OINHCQI study showed that the simplicity and replicability were an advantage to any health care provider working in a diverse setting.
