Educational Pearls:

  • 429 studies show that patient satisfaction has a positive association with the patients’ improvement after their hospital visit. 127 studies that show no change and only 1 study that has a negative association.
  • Good communication and good rapport with the patient and the patient’s family suggests that the patient is more likely to follow after-care instructions, follow up, and ask questions to understand what it happening.
