In a nutshell: Looked at total knee arthroplasty patient outcome data over a 5-year period and satisfaction with their hospital stay was also evaluated and their reasons for it were qualitatively documented. Concluded that a patient’s perception of their inpatient hospital experience after surgery is an important modifiable predictor of early functional outcome and satisfaction with TKA.
