This quantitative multivariate correlational research study used data about nursing home quality from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and data collected with Multifactor Leadership Questionnaires to determine whether a relationship existed between nursing home care quality, and the leader team of nursing home administrators and nursing directors. Eleven skilled nursing facilities participated. Descriptive and inferential statistical data analyses were performed using SPSS software. Analysis results concluded that no statistical significance existed in the study between the nursing home administrator and nursing director leadership styles, and care quality. Further studies are warranted in this area with differing methodology and care quality measures to determine whether nursing home leader teams of nursing home administrators and nursing directors are somehow related to care quality delivered in the long-term care setting.
