Abstract

Background:

The increasing incidence of chronic wounds, combined with the high number of patients requiring hospital services, has led to the concept of nurse-led wound care clinics to support general practitioners in the treatment and management of wounds.

Aim:

This study aims to assess patients’ perception of, and satisfaction with, wound care services in a tertiary healthcare setting in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Methods:

The study utilised a cross-sectional descriptive design and was conducted between September 2022 and October 2023, and data were collected via a client satisfaction questionnaire (CSQ-8).

Results:

Our findings revealed very positive responses overall. Considered together (response options 4 and 3), a majority of respondents (91.3%) rated the quality of service they received as “excellent” or “good”, and 85.6% reported receiving the kind of service they wanted. Regarding overall satisfaction, 92.5% of respondents reported being “very satisfied” or “mostly satisfied” with the overall service they received.

Conclusion:

This study reveals positive patient satisfaction with overall wound care services. However, there remains weakness in certain areas. This could be understood in more detail by conducting a qualitative study, so that action maybe taken to further improve the quality of healthcare services provided to patients.
