Background. The aim of ­this ­work is to eval­uate the ­quality and ­patients’ sat­is­fac­tion for ­given ser­vices in an Internal Medicine Department ­during ­three ­months.
Methods. A ques­tion­naire was ­given to all the ­patients ­admitted to our Medicine Department to eval­uate our ­strength and to cor­rect weak­ness.
Results. Our ­patients ­assessed doc­tors and ­nursing ­staff for ­skill and ded­i­ca­tion. They ­gave sug­ges­tions ­about ­hotel man­age­ment: bath­room ­cleaning and ­number of ­beds in the ­same ­room. They ­also ­asked for a phar­macy and a ­post ­office ­inside the hos­pital.
Conclusions. It ­appears ­that our ­ward ­gives a sat­is­fac­tory ­health ­care sit­u­a­tion. Some of our ­patients’ sug­ges­tions can be put ­into prac­tice in a ­short ­time, ­while ­others ­require ­longer, ­depending on ­public ­resources and not on pri­vate, ­such as hap­pens, on the con­trary, in the United States.
