Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this study was to determine if functional outcomes generated in an inpatient rehabilitation unit are significantly related to corresponding patient satisfaction survey results. Current studies have shown that functional gains are influenced by non-standardized patient satisfaction surveys, but are not significantly related to patient satisfaction. The results of this study conclude that patient satisfaction is not significantly correlated to functional outcomes on the whole, and that survey ratings are more predictive of overall patient satisfaction.
