Grigor and colleagues investigated the relationship between self-reported patient experience and the incidence of adverse events or prolonged length of hospitalization after surgery. Patients with a prolonged length of stay rated their experience lower on more measures than patients with adverse events did. Notably, extended length of stay was associated with a lower rating of the comprehensiveness of information provided by surgeons.
