Satisfaction evaluations reflect the expectations from the patients' point of view and compare with the realities of the care received.

A cross-sectional descriptive survey was conducted with 100 purposively selected patients admitted in Tomo Riba State Hospital, Arunachal Pradesh. Demographic data was collected by using an interview schedule; Patients' expectation and satisfaction were measured by rating scale. The results revealed that all (100%) patients had high expectations regarding nursing care. All (100%) patients had high expectations regarding comprehensive care, psychological care, communication and comfort. In the area of elimination, 32% of the patients had low expectation.
