Clinical Placements are integral components of the education of students who are training to become health care professionals. Patient’s satisfaction is vital component in the evaluation of health care outcomes, particularly in the area of rehabilitation. The purpose of this study was to evaluate inpatient attitude towards being assessed and treated by undergraduate physiotherapy students at VSPM College of physiotherapy and Lata Mangeshkar Hospital.
50 inpatient of age ranging between 15-64 years were asked to fill up the questionnaire.
1) Consent and Supervision: Result for this domain is positive with only two questions having negative response. In question number 1 -we got 100% negative response with all 50 patients saying NO and for question number 4-84% saying NO and 16% saying YES. 2) Standard of Care: Result for this domain is positive where every question had positive feedback. 3) Personal Feelings: Result for this domain is positive with only one question having negative response. The question for which we got negative response is question number 16 for which 62% saying YES and 38% saying NO. 4) General Comments: Result for this domain is positive where every question had positive feedback.
In our study we found that although the hospital lacks in taking written consent before students assessing and treating patients but patients have high level of confidence, trust, and satisfaction among the students treating them. They feel comfortable while communicating with medical students. In spite of being a rural area there are no cultural or gender issues.
