Although patient satisfaction has been used traditionally as a measure of excellence, research has suggested that the perception of being well cared for is likely a more promising indicator of quality than satisfaction alone.

This study evaluated the effect of a nurse practitioner audit and feedback intervention on hospitalized patients' perception of care.
