dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this research study was to discover how licensed Texas' long-term care facilities are currently addressing the issue of privacy. To achieve this objective, a survey was mailed to all of the 1,162 licensed Texas' LTC facilities (LTC facilities). The response rate was 37%. The profile which emerged from the data revealed that: (1) more responses came from "For Profit" LTC facilities than "Not for Profit" LTC facilities; (2) the mean number of residents per LTC facility is currently 106; (3) the majority of respondents considered privacy to be "very important" because residents have expressed a desire for privacy and respondents believe that privacy would irrlprove residents' quality of life; (4) the mean percentage of residents, per LTC facility, who would/could use a private time room is currently 39.7%; (5) the majority of LTC facilities have provided staff with an inservice that addressed the issue of privacy within the past twelve months; (6) currently, the main obstacle to providing residents with opportunities for privacy is monetary in nature; and (7) currently, the two most common ways of offering residents privacy are "private rooms" and "outside sitting areas".en_US
