Meanwhile , 68.7% of persons who accompanied the patients were satisfied from services, 31.3% of them showed a relatively satisfaction level. Furthermore , 38.3% of clients mentioned that they were satisfied from the facilities and equipments and 48% of them were relatively satisfied and 0.3% of them said that they were not satisfied at all. The percentages of satisfied , relatively satisfied and not satisfied for those who accompanied the patients from the point of facilities and equipments were relatively 38.3% , 50.5% and 11.3%. The results also showed that those with more than 3 times of referral were more satisfied from services (P= 0.044). The same results were found between those who referred during mornings and nights in comparison with evening shifts (P= 0.018) and it was applicable for social security insurance patients (P= 0.044) but , there were not meaningful relations between patients and their accompanying ones from the point of their satisfaction level of medical services .
