Staff on a 28-bed surgical unit in a suburban 461-bed medical center implemented 3 interventions to improve patient satisfaction. This quality improvement study investigated the effects of nurse manager rounding, postdischarge phone follow-up, and improved discharge teaching skills on patients' ratings of their care. HCAHPS (Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems) survey scores demonstrated a steady upward trend over 18 months following implementation of the changes.
