Abstract

Emergency Department (ED) is a setting where patients usually present with acute and severe illnesses (1). Nowadays, patient satisfaction has become an important outcome of health care services and shows quality of care that provides valuable information about the care delivered by an ED system (2-4). A patient’s experience at an ED can influence his or her choice of hospital when seeking future care and may generate either positive or negative comments among their social sphere (5). Patient satisfaction depends on many factors such as length of stay at ED, severity of illness, demographic characteristics of patients, patient’s origin and language barriers (6-7). We conducted the current study to find out whether the presence of Emergency Medicine (EM) system is effective in patient satisfaction in the EDs.
