Measurement Of Patient Satisfaction In A Public Hospital In Ankara
This article communicates the results of a patient satisfaction survey administered to 420 adults discharged from a major public hospital in Turkey. The direct measurement of patient satisfaction is a relatively new phenomenon for this country. A system was designed similar to those available in the US and was applied during an exit interview. Three areas of analysis were identified: accessibility and availability of services, perceived quality of patient care and organizational and administrative issues. Relationships and percentages within and among several variables are reported. Overall, most individuals were satisfied with direct patient care, although in some areas this varied significantly and was based on the education level of the respondent. In addition, many customers reported discontentment with organizational and administrative support services. We recommend that hospitals in Turkey adapt routine policies similar to those in the US for conducting these types of evaluations. © 2001, SAGE Publications. All rights reserved.
