  1. Abbreviations: WNCS wirelessnurse call system, TD/D totally disagree/disagree, A/TA agree/totally agree. TD/D value ≥20% indicates that the determinant or item is a barrier to the implementation. The percentage values are rounded to the nearest whole number. 1 In the personal drawback item, the barrier is expressed in the A/TA column. Response scales: ^ 1; totally disagree, 2; disagree, 3; neither agree nor disagree, 4; agree, 5; totally agree. * 1; totally agree, 2; agree, 3; neither agree nor disagree, 4; disagree, 5; totally disagree. ~ 1; most definitely not, 2; definitely not, 3; perhaps, perhaps not, 4; definitely, 5; most definitely
