Abstract
The researchers examined the range of problems and influences of eldercare in the workplace; and assessed whether the demographic characteristics and eldercare problems of nurses are predictors of job performance. Seventy-four full-time nurses employed in a long-term care facility were surveyed using standardized instruments measuring eldercare problems, impacts, job satisfaction, organizational citizenship, and job performance. The results of the regression analysis show that nurses with high levels of eldercare problems hove higher levels of self-reported job performance.
