Patient Satisfaction with Services Provided at Night and the Assessment of the Quality of Care in the Hospital

Night nursing care has different priorities from the care in the morning and afternoon hours. The patient as the subject of nursing activities may assess the quality of this care in a more or less objective way, thus giving the opportunity to improve or improve these services. The study was conducted to assess the quality of care and general nursing care. The studied population constituted 585 patients hospitalized in the Clinical Hospitals of the city of Rzeszów. The research was carried out from 1 January 2016 to 31 May 2016. In the patients opinion survey, the method of the diagnostic survey was used, using two standardized NSNS questionnaires, the PASAT HOSPIT1 package and the original questionnaire. The assessment of services provided by nurses at night that was made with the use of the Newcastle scale was high (experience - 63.7 points, satisfaction - 60.3 points), and the assessment based on the Author's Questionnaire. The correlation between the assessment of night-time care and the overall assessment of nursing care indicates statistically significant (R=0.51 and R=0.47) and significantly influenced assessment of the overall nursing care. The quality of the night tasks resulting from the therapeutic function and caring were considerably related to the overall assessment of the nursing care. The relationship between the assessment according to the PASAT HOSPIT 1 questionnaire and the assessment of nursing care on the basis of the Newcastle scale is most correlated with the nurse's availability (satisfaction -p=0.0000***), the speed of response to the call (satisfaction -p=0.0000***) and the satisfaction from nursing care.
