Patient satisfaction with nursing care was assessed by a self-designed questionnaire administered to 320 inpatients selected by a convenience sampling method. The patients had a relatively high level of satisfaction with nursing care. Patients' age, educational background, occupation, methods of payment, and hospital wards were main factors influencing their satisfaction with nursing care. The study provides a new tool for measuring patient satisfaction with nursing care in China. © 2007 Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, Inc.
