CTICU: cardiothoracic intensive care unit; CCU: coronary intensive care unit; MICU: medical intensive care unit; SICU: surgical intensive care unit; SD: standard deviation; and LOS: length of stay.
One-way analysis of variance for more than two groups.
Independent t-test for two groups.
Significant level < 0.01.
Significant level < 0.05.
Interpretation of the mean score: 1 = not at all satisfied, 2 = not very satisfied, 3 = somewhat satisfied, 4 = very satisfied, and 5 = completely satisfied.
