  16. 16. Customer Survey Most comments were made by those who rated beingsomewhat or highly dissatisfied Food: Low grade, not tasty, cold,undercooked. Some did say thatthe food was excellent and arrivedhot Service: Lazy, rude servers, lack knowledge andengagement, no ability to provide feedback, some saidthat servers were excellent and aimed to please
  17. 17. Overall Customer Satisfaction DataOf the 52 customers interviewed the mean score was 3.94 out of 5.
  18. 18. Key Findings Utilized the RATER model (reliability, assurance, tangibles,empathy, and responsiveness) to determine the gaps Manager/Customer – Food quality Manager believes the food tastes good andhas a good plate presentation Although majority of patients were highly orsomewhat satisfied with the food, some commented that thefood was “low grade” and “not tasty”. Also complained abouttemperature Manager needs to work on improving tray service, and makingmenu options for those on altered consistency diets moreappetizing
  19. 19. Key Findings Manager and Customer – Service quality Manager states that he provides face-to-face interactionwith patients, and that he is proud of the fact that heincreased customer satisfaction since 2011 (76% to 90%) Our findings were that satisfaction did not increase (73%).Patients stated that the staff was lazy, rude, notknowledgeable and they could not provide feedback. Manager can increase staff educationand training, also conduct in depthsatisfaction surveys periodically toknow what their successes anddeficiencies are
  20. 20. Key Findings Manager /Employees Neither Genesis HealthCare nor the manager measure employeesatisfaction Mr. Ortiz threatening employees jobs shows lack of leadership skills andmay backfire Uses dissatisfiers, such a small monetary gifts Does not use satisfiers like employee incentives or recognition Good Interpersonal skills does not make him an efficient leader Employees feel empowered to please guests is a satisfier Focusing on ratings instead of the future shows poor leadership skills The route to better ratings may be through employees happiness Employees do not know the mission statement means employees caninterpret the mission in there own way Employees that believe there is no opportunity for advancement maybelieve hard work goes unrewarded
  21. 21. Future Study SuggestionsEnsure that patient survey questionsmatch those asked to managerAsk more specific questionsIncrease sample size for accuracy
