This paper will report on the psychometric testing of the PFSQ. METHODS: The data were retrieved from several years of patient satisfaction surveys collected at a large Midwest hospital and clinics. The SPSS statistical software was used to test the reliability and construct validity of the PFSQ. RESULTS: Alpha for the total instrument was .83, based on 327 cases and 35 items. Factor analysis indicated two main factors, nursing care and medical care, with a total of 30 items. CONCLUSION: The PFSQ is considered a promising instrument for evaluating parental satisfaction in general, inpatient pediatric units. urther development of the instrument is suggested.
