The use of staff ratings as an outcome measure in adaptation to hemodialysis studies is discussed, and the absence of reliability or validity of such ratings is emphasized. Staff ratings for global impressions of patient compliance are collected in an outpatient hemodialysis unit, inter-rater reliability is calculated, and the rating averages are correlated with three biological markers. A high degree of exact inter-rater agreement is found and correlation of ratings with inter-dialysis weight gain, mean BUN, and mean K are determined.
