Abstract

The effects of contact isolation on patient satisfaction are unknown. We performed a cross‐sectional survey and found that most patients lack education and knowledge regarding isolation but feel that it improves their care. In multivariable analysis, isolated patients were not less satisfied with inpatient care than were nonisolated patients.
