ABSTRACT

The level of patient satisfaction is important for service quality in hospitals. This study aims to measure the level of patient satisfaction at University Kebangsaan Malaysia Medical Centre (UKMMC) and the factors affecting it. A cross-sectional study was conducted on 520 respondents at the outpatient department in four clinics in UKMMC by using self-administered questionnaires. Respondents were selected using a systematic sampling method based on the list of patient appointments. The level of patient satisfaction was measured using the PSQIII domain. Less than half of the respondents were satisfied with the overall service provided (41.0%), while the others (59.0%) were not satisfied. Based on the domain studied, the level of satisfaction varies widely: the highest satisfaction were interpersonal relationships (75.8%) followed by the registration process (73.8%), technical quality (71.3%), communication (66.7%), physical facilities (64.6%), accessibility (60.2%), and financial (47.3%). The level of patient satisfaction was low and financial domain should be given more attention to in order to ensure an increase in patient satisfaction levels.

Keywords: patient satisfaction, outpatient clinics, quality, service
