At Cabrini we are committed to provide you with safe, effective and compassionate connected care in an inclusive, respectful and responsive way to meet your individual preferences, needs and values. We will treat you in a personal and memorable way at every stage of your healthcare journey. To make sure that we deliver on this promise we regularly seek feedback on the quality of service people receive in our care.


Patient Experience Rating

Cabrini Health’s Patient Experience Rating is published quarterly and based on survey results collected from our patients, their family members and carers who have entered our inpatient health service. The survey focuses on the following key areas of care:

Communication – you and your family and/or carer will be:

  • Listened to
  • Treated with respect and compassion
  • Receive information in a way that you can understand

Environment - the physical environment promotes healing, is clean, safe and allows for privacy.

Personalised Holistic Care – you will receive care that is:

  • Safe and effective
  • Meets your individual needs
  • You will be included in making decisions about your treatment and care as much as you would like to be 

Pain control/Medication – you are asked about your comfort and informed about the medicines you are taking.

Discharge Planning – you and your family and/or carer will be included in preparing and planning for your health care needs when going home in accordance with your wishes.

Discharge information – you will be provided with information you understand to empower you to manage your own health when leaving our service.

Recent changes

The patient experience survey changed on 5 May, 2021 to align with the Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems. Since the change in survey occurred, the domains of care also changed so we could benchmark against other hospitals more closely. 

We have also started sending the Patient Experience Surveys 3 weeks post discharge to allow patients’ time to reflect on their experience at Cabrini.

We continuously seek feedback to improve our services at Cabrini and we use this data to work on quality improvement projects with staff.


How do we collect patient feedback?

Upon discharge from our hospitals and health facilities, we invite each patient to provide us with their feedback about their Cabrini experience. The responses are tallied and grouped into ten domains of care. The overall rating represents the average of these satisfaction scores and published on our website at the end of each quarter.

  • The average number of survey responses per month is 543
  • The number of survey responses for the April - June 2021 quarter is 1630
