Out of 400 patients 364 (91 %) had reported one/ more dissatisfaction/s. Higher frequencies of dissatisfaction reporting found in illiterate, lower social class, in-door patients, treated by surgical departments & lower frequencies of dissatisfaction in age group below 15 years and rural dwellers. Of the 37 types of dissatisfaction reported, 10 were found to be of serious nature viz. cursory clinical examination (56 %), lack of counseling (40 %), inadequate privacy during clinical examination (14.28 %), lack of explanation regarding drug schedule (43 %), unsatisfactory emergency management (32.95 %), occurrence of post-operative surgical complications (28.82 %), discharged without relief (6.18 %) & illegal demand of money, etc. Most of these were acts of omission on part of service providers. In terms of legal liability, the service-provider constitutes a collective responsibility with respect to application of law. Some of the dissatisfactions need to be taken seriously and prevented.
