Abstract Patient satisfaction is a pivotal issue within the healthcare industry. Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Provider and System (HCAHPS) survey clearly states that patient response to surveys is the indicator for '“quality of care" (Wagner & Bear, 2008, p. 692). A patient may equate quality of care to the manner in which it was delivered; hence when unsatisfied with their care, the patient may translate this into negative feedback on HCAHPS surveys (Lo, Burman, Rodin, & Zimmermann, 2009).
