Abstract

A descriptive, non-experimental survey type of research was employed in conducting the study. Forty (40) private patients from 1400, 2200, 3500 and 3600 of De La Salle University Medical Center and 40 charity patients form JP 2nd floor and JP 3rd floor service wards of Dr. Jose P. Rizal Hospital & National Medical Research Center were the respondents selected through purposive sampling technique. A self-made questionnaire served as the instrument of the study. This consisted of two (2) parts: the socio-demographic data and level of acceptance of private and charity patients to the care rendered by student nurses of De La Salle Health Sciences Campus. The statistical tests applied were percentage, mean, t-test and f-test. The study concluded that, most of the respondents consisted of patients who belong to the middle adult or those within the 41-65 year old group, males, who are under medicine as an admission classification, and had been admitted for five (5) days and above. The overall mean of the level of acceptance of private patients and charity patients to the care rendered by student nurses of DLSHSC is 0.651, which implies that both private and charity patients accepted the care rendered by student nurses of DLSHSC. There is no significant difference between level of acceptance of private and charity patients to the care rendered by student nurses of De La Salle Health Sciences Campus when they are grouped according to age, gender, admission classification and the length of hospitalization.
