- Patient Satisfaction Scores After Cardiac Surgery: Should They Be Risk-Adjusted?Seminars in Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery
- PreviewThe Hospital Consumer Assessment of Health Care Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) is a survey tool that quantifies patient satisfaction after hospitalization. We sought to interrogate our HCAHPS results in order to identify any association between preoperative health, type of operation, and postoperative outcomes, with patient satisfaction after cardiac surgery. Of 12,572 patients who underwent cardiac surgery between December 2012 and December 2019, 2587 patients (20.6%) completed the HCAHPS survey.
