This project evaluates the level of patient satisfaction at the Royal Hospital for Neuro-disability, targeting quality of life issues that arise in healthcare literature through the use of a quantitative survey and qualitative in-depth interviews. A key aspect of research and implementation in the study was utilizing augmentative communication tools for neurologically disabled patients. The study reveals strengths in the hospital's staff and overall atmosphere and weaknesses in the activities, wheelchair repair, and the scheduling of meals.
