Patient feedback regarding doctors service was rated as average. Regarding the quality of services provided by the nurses and ward boys, 50% of the participant rated it as average. 50% of the participants gave average score to coordination among healthcare team towards smooth management of the patient. Behavior of the of the reception staff was rated good by only 38% of the participants. Regarding general services and facilities in the hospital like ease to find the hospital and parking was reported satisfactory by 55.7% of the participants. Conclusion: There were several factors contributing towards below average scoring in hospital services. Although the perception and judgement of quality are highly individualistic and dynamic, this percentage scores can be used as a feedback of the quality services which can be considered as parameter to improvise the service of any tertiary care hospital.
