MIRA, José Joaquín et al. Design and validation of the CSR-Hospital-SP scale to measure corporate social responsibility. Gac Sanit [online]. 2013, vol.27, n.6, pp.529-532. ISSN 0213-9111.

Objective: To design and validate a scale (CSR-Hospital-SP) to determine health professionals’ views on the approach of management to corporate social responsibility (CSR) in their hospital. Methods: The literature was reviewed to identify the main CSR scales and select the dimensions to be evaluated. The initial version of the scale consisted of 25 items. A convenience sample of a minimum of 224 health professionals working in five public hospitals in five autonomous regions were invited to respond. Floor and ceiling effects, internal consistency, reliability, and construct validity were analyzed. Results: A total of 233 health professionals responded. The CSR-Hospital-SP scale had 20 items grouped into four factors. The item-total correlation was higher than 0.30; all factor loadings were greater than 0.50; 59.57% of the variance was explained; Cronbach's alpha was 0.90; Spearman-Brown's coefficient was 0.82. Conclusion: The CSR-Hospital-SP scale is a tool designed for hospitals that implement accountability mechanisms and promote socially responsible management approaches.
