Abstract [en]

ackground. There are a number studies related to patients’ satisfaction with health care. Since the Baltic States regained independence in 1990, a reform of the health care system took place in which a serious consideration is paid to health care quality. Patients' views are becoming increasingly important in the current health system. They provide information on effectiveness of healthcare and how it may be improved.The main objective of this study was to investigate inpatients experiences with the care and treatment given in Klaipeda hospitals in order to improve the quality of care and patients’ satisfaction. Material and methods. A cross-sectional survey with questionnaires was made. The subjects of the investigation were patients (from 18 years old), hospitalized in internal and surgery departments in different Klaipeda city hospitals. The survey questions were divided into sections that broadly followed the patient's experience in the hospital. The analyses included descriptive statistics, interrelationship analysis between the different characteristics, and multiple logistic regression to estimate Odds for each of the independent variables in the model.Results. The study shows that 60-80 % of the respondents were satisfied with different parts and aspects of health care services. Satisfaction with getting enough time for discussion with the doctor was higher for younger, male and employed patients. Those from the city needed more understandable explanation from doctor about health condition or treatment plan. Doctors listened more to male patients compare to female. Those results were statistically significant. Conclusions. Majority of the patients were satisfied with hospitalization order in Klaipeda hospitals. Better physician communication skills can improve patient satisfaction and clinical outcomes. Physicians could more effectively facilitate patient involvement by more frequently using partnership-building and supportive communication. Hospital cleanliness is quite important factor to overall satisfaction with hospital care. Waiting time is a significant component of patient satisfaction and depends from patients’ characteristics and their behavior. Different aspects of reception can influence patients’ satisfaction and must be considered. Information about continuity of the treatment were needed more for patients with an increased need for follow up, younger and living alone patients. It is important to provide the setting customers expect and create an environment that meets or exceeds customer needs for safety, security, support, competence, physical comfort, and psychological comfort.
