Abstract

Patient experience has been one of many significant drivers in determining hospitals' performance. Multivariate logistic regression was used to investigate the factors that impacted patients' likelihood to give top ratings for the overall hospital experience. Large hospitals with a lower percentage of Medicare/Medicaid patients and existing electronic health record system were more likely to receive top ratings. White, female patients with lower education levels were more likely to give top ratings for all quality domains (nurse, doctor, staff, and environment). All quality domains had positive impacts on patient experience, with the nursing domain being the most influential factor.
