Objective: To measure patients' and carers' satisfaction with physical and psychological care provided by stroke services in hospital and post-discharge. To compare satisfaction with certain components of care and between patients and carers. Design: Postal Questionnaire Survey. Setting: Stroke Rehabilitation Unit, Law Hospital, Lanarkshire Subjects: All patients discharged from the Stroke Rehabilitation Unit within a four- month period, and identified carers. The response rates were 67% (n=28) for patients and 42% (n=l 8) for carers. Results: High levels of satisfaction were found overall and for each of the components of care. Satisfaction was higher than previously found on general hospital wards. There were no differences in satisfaction between components of care or between patients and carers. Areas of particular satisfaction were personal care and information in hospital, and post-discharge medical care. Areas of least satisfaction were post-discharge personal care, emotional support and information. Conclusions: Stroke patients and carers were highly satisfied with physical and psychological care provided in hospital and post-discharge. Specialized stroke rehabilitation units may produce greater satisfaction than stroke services in general wards. The areas of least satisfaction are within post-discharge care, and warrant further attention in service planning.
