Purpose: to assess the psychometric properties of the Readiness for
Hospital Discharge Scale (RHDS).
Conceptual framework: The attributes of readiness for hospital discharge
were identified through literature review and input from nurse clinicians.
Readiness for Hospital Discharge is conceptualized as having a dimensional
structure that includes: Personal Wellbeing, Knowledge, Perceived Coping
Ability, Expected Support.
Subjects: Postpartum mothers; Adult medical-surgical patients; and Parents
of hospitalized children. 120 subjects in each sample group.
Methods: During a larger study of predictors and outcomes of readiness for
discharge, the RHDS was administered within 4 hours of hospital discharge.
Data for known group comparisons were collected using a socio-demographic
questionnaire. Data for predictive validity assessment were collected at 3
weeks post-discharge and included measures of post-discharge coping
difficulty and post-discharge utilization of health services. Data
collection is in progress and will be completed by 12/04.
Analysis: Construct validity will be assessed using principal components
factor analysis. The 3 sample groups will be merged for factor analysis.
Suitability of the data for factor analysis will be assessed through item
statistics, communalities, Kaiser-Meyer-Olkin test of sampling adequacy,
BarlettÆs test of sphericity, and scree plot. Known Groups comparisons
will include comparison of RHDS scores by age, gender, race, living
arrangement, education, socioeconomic status). Predictive validity will be
assessed by regression of post-discharge coping on RHDS scores and by
comparisons of RHDS scores by type and amount of utilization of
post-discharge health services.
Implications: The results of this study have implications for further
development of the Readiness for Hospital Discharge Scale for use in
research and clinical practice.
