AnnotationThe purpose of the study was to develop a rating scale based on the observation of geriatric patients in the day-to-day behaviour in a hospital setting. Such a scale was to include all behaviour of patients that was deemed relevant to their leaving hospital as "improved", and at the same time was amenable to objective recording by outside observers. Another goal in developing the Stockton Geriatric Rating Scale (SGRS) was a factor analysis of the rating scale, in order to determine the significant dimensions of patient behaviour on the ward.
