Table 2 Three themes of responses to an upcoming inspection

From: Inspecting teams’ and organisations’ expectations regarding external inspections in health care: a qualitative study

1) Leaders and frontline clinical staff perceived the quality of care in the inspected area to be adequate, and, accordingly, no measures were initiated to improve care.
2) Leaders and frontline clinical staff perceived the quality of care in the inspected area to be inadequate and therefore initiated measures to improve care.
3) Leaders did not involve frontline clinical staff in assessing the quality of care in the inspected area and perceived the quality to be adequate on the basis of a review of written guidelines. Frontline clinical staff perceived the care to be inadequate and in need of improvement. No measures were initiated to improve care.
