Abstract

In this survey, 274 patients were sent a questionnaire concerning satisfaction with psychiatric treatment and the ward 1 month after their discharge from hospital. Fifty‐two percent of the patients responded. Answers to the 56 items of patient satisfaction were analyzed in relation to patient diagnoses and treatment given. Patients who were diagnosed as suffering from affective disorders or from reactive psychoses were more satisfied than patients with schizophrenia or paranoia or with transitory adjustment reactions. Patients who had no personality disorder diagnosis and patients with character neurosis were more satisfied than patients with antisocial or borderline personality disorders. Patients on antidepressant medication were much more satisfied than other patients. The results of the study are discussed with regard to the need of further research in this area and to quality assurance.
