Abstract

The basic purpose of the Dialysis Patient Satisfaction Survey (DPSS) is to assess renal patients' satisfaction with the health care they are receiving, including satisfaction with their kidney doctor, the nurses they see at the dialysis clinic, other staff at the dialysis clinic and at their primary kidney doctor's office, the physical environment at the clinic, and their health plan. The questionnaire is designed for all dialysis patients, including patients who are receiving hemodialysis and those receiving peritoneal dialysis. The questionnaire is flexible enough to be used across the country and by both public and privately insured patients.
