Abstract

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: To determine the psychometric properties of the Persian version of the Revised Humane Caring Scale (RHCS) for patients admitted to critical care units. METHODS: Data were collected from 337 patients admitted to critical care units. A methodological study was carried out to assess content, face and construct validity and reliability. RESULTS: The results revealed good content validity. After the elimination of four items in the confirmatory factor analysis, a 42-item model with acceptable fit indices was confirmed. The scale had a high internal consistency. The reliability of each item was satisfactory using the intra-class correlation. Only item 33 was considered unstable and was ultimately eliminated. CONCLUSIONS: The Persian version of the 41-item RHCS is an acceptable assessment scale for measuring patient satisfaction with humane caring in critical care units. KEYWORDS: Revised Humane Caring Scale; critical care unit; humane caring; patient satisfaction; psychometry
