Satisfaction levels with a community night nursing service

AIM: To compare the satisfaction levels of patients and carers with a community night nursing service. METHOD: Thirty seven patients and 23 carers completed satisfaction postal questionnaires. Respondents were further subdivided into acute, chronic and terminally ill patients and their carers. RESULTS: Satisfaction levels with the service were generally high, although respondents from the terminally ill group showed the lowest levels of satisfaction overall. The Kruskal-Wallis test showed that results between the groups were not significantly different. (Chi-square (x two) text= 3.52; df= two; P= 0.712). CONCLUSION: Although the results demonstrated positive levels of satisfaction with the community night nursing service, there were some respondents who indicated a low level of satisfaction. This could be explained by patients' and carers' lack of autonomy and inadequate provision of psychological care.
