Un des moyens utilisés pour évaluer la qualité des soins chirurgicaux est la satisfaction des patients sur leur prise en charge par le personnel infirmier du bloc opératoire. l’objectif de notre étude était d’évaluer la qualité de la prise en charge infirmière (PEC) de l’opéré et sa satisfaction à l’Hôpital Régional de Ngaoundéré (HRN). Patients et méthodes. Il s’agit d’une étude transversale prospective conduite dans le service de chirurgie de l’HRN sur une période de trois (03) mois allant de septembre à décembre 2015, en utilisant un questionnaire et un audit observationnel. Les variables étudiées étaient les connaissances et attitudes du patient vis-à-vis de la chirurgie et de l’anesthésie et le niveau de satisfaction dans toutes ses dimensions. Celui-ci a été corrélé au sexe, au score ASA et au type d’anesthésie. Résultats. Un échantillon de 60 participants a permis d’obtenir un taux global de satisfaction de 75%. Les dimensions ayant un taux élevé étaient: les compétences techniques (91.8%), le respect (92.6%) et les caractéristiques du personnel (84.4%). Les mauvaises dimensions étaient: le soutien à l’initiative 47.5%. Conclusion. Ces résultats soulignent l’importance de la prise en charge et prouvent que des améliorations doivent être apportées dans le domaine du péri opératoire et de la qualité des soins fournis.

The aim of the study was to assess the healthcare quality provided to patients, and how satisfied they are with focus on the sociodemographic factors that can affect the patients’ nursing at the Regional Hospital of Ngaoundere. Patients and methods. This was a cross sectional transversal prospective study that was carried in n the surgery unit of the Regional Hospital of Ngaoundéré from September to December 2015. Our tools were a questionnaire and observational audit. Our study variables were the knowledge and attitudes of patients in relation to aesthesia and surgery, and the level of satisfaction in all its dimensions during the various stages of the perioperative interventions. Results. Within three (03) months, we have got and handled a sample if sixty (60) patients, using a questionnaire that enabled us to record 3.75 for the total amount of satisfaction and 75% for the total rate. The technical competences were the highest proportion with a total rate of 91.8%, 92.6% for the esteem (respect) and 84.4% for the staff characteristics. But supporting was less, with 47.5%.
