The statistical population of this research includes patients who have been hospitalized in the hospital for a minimum period of 24 hours. All patients were interviewed in the releasing time. Study tools were prepared on the basis of the standard questionnaires of the Ministry of llealth and Medical Education. The collected data were analyzed by SPSS program and using Chi square and T tests. Results: About 68% of patients were satisfied with the hospital services. Among the different units, the highest level of dissatisfaction was shown for the accessibility of nurses and physicians and facilities of their rooms. The results indicate a negative relationship between satisfaction and the level of education.
