Acknowledgement

One of the most pleasant parts of submitting a report on a project is the opportunity to
thank those who have contributed to it. Unfortunately the list of expression of thanks no
matter how extensive is always incomplete and inadequate. This acknowledgement is no
exception.

We are taking this privilege to deliver our gratefulness to each and every people who are
involved with us in every phase of our life.

Firstly, we are grateful to our parents without them we cannot be here. Then we sincerely
acknowledge our debt to our faculty Golam Md. Forkan for his valuable counseling towards
the improvement of the report. Without his encouragement this would have been
impossible. He is a very helpful and friendly person and been always there, where we
needed him.

Thanks must go to our friends whose unflagging patience and astounding capacity for
creative work and long hours made the work both possible and successful- under the
pressure of impossible deadlines.

Once again thanks to those who have helped us to improve the report with various advice.

W ith the recent rapid changes in the health care delivery system, health
care purchasers, consumers, and providers have become increasingly interested
in assessing the quality of care. Several components of the quality of health
care can best be assessed by patient reports on their experience; these include
access to care, interpersonal aspects of medical care, and some aspects of
outcomes of care.

For the last five decades, the government has systematically nurtured the
private health sector. This consistent support and encouragement to the private
health sector are very important for the growth of the health care service
providers.

Square Hospital is a new health care service provide in Bangladesh. It aims to


provide unparallel service to the people of Bangladesh by delivering the highest
possible level of care.

There are approximately 9 % patients are taking medical service form square
Hospital. To review the patient’s satisfaction of square hospital we directly
asked a sample of 35 people about its service delivery. Gaining customer
satisfaction through- care, information, friendliness is important for Square
Hospital. Square hospital is following some rules for its Patients Satisfaction.
Like:-
 No needless deaths
 No needless pain or suffering.
 No unwanted waiting
 No needless helplessness
 No waste

Around 70-80 percent of the people relied on the public hospital, but most of
the public and private hospitals performance are poor. In addition, hospitals
produce stress in a variety of ways. There are few health care organization
that are Created pleasant, comfortable, and informative environments to
relieve stress and Promote satisfaction among patients, their families, and
staff square hospital is one of them . Moreover square hospital is improving its
performance day by day through its doctors, staffs, and owner dedication, hard

1.1 ORIGIN OF THE REPORT

We are the students of BBA 10th Batch. In this semester we are doing the Research

There are some particular reasons & purposes of doing the survey. The purposes are: to
Know the on Patients satisfaction on Hospital service Delivery in Bangladesh and what
actually health care industry does for patient’s satisfaction.

1.3 SCOPES

This report tries to give a brief idea about the Patients satisfaction on Hospital service
Delivery in Bangladesh. As being business students we have to write report, make inquiries
and make research. As BBA students we make some small survey as our course
requirements, like marketing, International Business, Business Law etc. so we have some
experience of survey. But we don’t have the full knowledge and enough experience on it. We
choose one health care service provider by a lottery. Name of that health care service
provider is:

 Square Hospital Ltd.


18/F West Panthapath, Dhaka - 1205,
Phone No: 8159457
www.squarehospital.com

We have tried to enhance our practical knowledge with the helps of the theoretical
concepts. In addition, we have tried to find out the differences between the conceptual
studies with the practical experiences.

1.4 LIMITATIONS

We have tried our best to make the report perfectly. Instead if our best try we think
there is some lacks in data & information. At the time of doing the report we have faced
many difficulties. Like:-

 First of all, we would like to mention the time and monetary limitations.
 Some time respondents did not provide information’s.
 At last, some time the respondents do not take it seriously so that it need time to
convince them to participate to answer these questions.

1.5 METHODOLOGIES:-

The survey encompassed one sample group:

 Medical Patients

For this Survey we are using primary data. We have Collect Primary Data from the patients,
by asking questions. Based on their information we conduct this research. The survey was
administered by using direct interview and questionnaires. Participation in the survey was
entirely voluntary and confidential. We get Secondary Data from the web site and catalog
of Square Hospital Ltd.
The questionnaires were given to a random number of 35 patients. To be selected in the
survey, patients had to be:

 Adults (age 18 and older)


 Admitted for at least a one night stay in the hospital

Here is a picture of all patients who completed the survey:-

Gender Age
65% female 42% under age 65
35% male 58% age 65 or older

1.6 THE REPORT PREVIEW:-

The health care industry in Bangladesh has undergone tremendous change. Health care
providers must view their health care delivery organizations as businesses and must use the
tools of business, to ensure customer satisfaction.

Square Hospital is a new health care service provide in Bangladesh. In this report we focus
only customer satisfaction. The Mission of Square Hospital Bangladesh is: - Deliver
QUALITY health care within 5 CORE standards.

 Adhering to high ethical and moral standards at all times


 Making service quality top priority in all we do

8
 Training staff to work within a quality care environment
 Providing quality health care service in all processes
 Delivering customer satisfaction through quality service

Hospital provides service not only to cure but also to comfort the sick to ameliorate pain,
discomfort, and emotional distress. To ensure that sufficient level of “caring” as well as
“curing” are provided, it is necessary to identify and objectively measure patients
perceptions of caring . This report focus on some unique satisfaction items for patients (e.g.
skill of nursing care, Recovery of physical health, and respect for patient’s opinions and
feelings,) were significantly associated with overall satisfaction. This report also focus
common items (e.g. recovery from distress and anxiety and doctor’s clinical competence)
also related significantly to overall satisfaction. Suggest what Square hospital must do to
satisfy its patients so as to achieve its financial objectives.

2.0 PRESENT SCENARIO OF HEALTH CARE IN BANGLADESH:-

Gaining patient’s satisfaction is a bigger issue for today’s hospitals or health care industries
.what the hospital must do to satisfy its patients so as to achieve its financial objectives to
answer this question, managers must initially identify the firm's target market and clarify
its patient care objectives using their critical success factors.

Today's health care organizations are more focusing to reduce the costs, improve the
quality of care and meet stringent guidelines and this has made it necessary to re-examine
the method of evaluating the service performance. Because Health care services are
intangible, patients or customers often rely on tangible cues, or physical evidence, to
evaluate the service before it purchase and to assess their satisfaction with the service
during and after consumption. Physical evidence is the environment in which the service is
delivered and in which the firm and the customer interact, and any tangible commodities
that facilitates performance or communication of the service. Today's health care
organizations are following a process to ensure patients satisfaction:

Hospital  Building  Uniforms


exterior  Reports/Station
 Parking ary
 Signs  Building
Square Hospital  Waiting areas statements
 Admissions  Websites

 Patient career

 Medical
equipment
 Recovery room

What do patients want? Both interpersonal relations and technical skill are rated highly. A
systematic review on patients' priorities for general practice care was conducted as part of
our project the most highly rated aspect of care was "humaneness." This was followed by
"competence/accuracy," "patients' involvement in decisions," and "time for care.” For
example, patients in our survey placed greatest importance on having a "doctor who listens
and does not hurry. Patients increasingly expect to participate in decisions about their care,
but these aspirations (something that you hope to achieve) are rarely met. Failures in
communication and incorrect assumptions about patients' preferences are surprisingly
common.

Doctors and patients don't always agree on priorities. Patients gave much higher priority to
sufficient consultation time, availability of appointments at short notice, and being given
detailed information about their illness, whereas doctors tended to place greater emphasis
on coordination of care, home visits, and continuity.

The patient wants to be an informed and empowered consumer, but the doctor prefers a
long term relationship with a docile (quiet and easy to influence, persuade or control :)
patient.

According to our server we have found few Skills that Doctors or a physician should need
for salesmanship. Those are:-

 Organizational skills
 Personal skills
 Interaction skills
 Analytical skills
 Communication skills
 Teaching skills
