ABSTRACT

Objective: The purpose of this study is to verify the reliability and validity of the home safety self-assessment tool(HSSAT). Methods: HSSAT was adapted to a Korean-translated version of home safety self-assessment tool(K-HSSAT) using a translation-reverse translation technique. The content validity index was identified by ten experts. Reliability was verified as an internal consistency coefficient between examinations, reexaminations and various inspectors. The verifications were performed to compare the pre-and post-application of solutions in 10 people. Results: The Content Validity Index of K-HSSAT resulted in a high value (0.94). After verifying its convergent validity, the correlation coefficient ranged within 0.232 to 0.520 for the total score of K-HSSAT and each CHFH domain, where all 4 CHFH domains showed significant correlations( p <.01). The internal consistency coefficient (Cronbach’s α value) of K-HSSAT resulted in 0.89. After reliability was verified between multiple inspectors, all 9 domains showed statistically significant correlations( p <.01). The comparison of K-HSSAT solutions before and after the application resulted in a difference that was statistically significant( p <.01), at 17.40±4.55 and 12.70±3.26, respectively. Conclusion: The validity and reliability of K-HSSAT were confirmed. K-HSSAT has been evinced to be a diverse tool not only for evaluating the falling environmental dangers of elderlies’ homes but also for other environmental modifications.
