Inhoud: Providing efficacious, compassionate, and efficient medical care to persons with HIV infection is one of the greatest challenges that will face US hospitals this decade. Unfortunately, there have been almost no studies of how organizational arrangements are related to the quality of care. We developed an interview protocol and conducted a pilot study to evaluate the instrument's ability to detect differences in selected interpersonal aspects of care provided to persons with AIDS. We evaluated the care received in two different treatment models in a major teaching hospital: a designated AIDS unit and general medical beds. We assessed several areas of patient care that are clinically important and that patients can evaluate: communication between patients and providers, patient education, respect for patient preferences, emotional support, involvement of family and friends, trust and confidence, physical care, pain management, AIDS knowledge, perceived segregation, confidentiality, and financial information. Patients generally were very satisfied with their hospital care, but many reported problems with certain aspects of their care. The instrument used detected differences between the care reported by patients treated in general hospital beds and in a designated AIDS unit in several specific aspects of care.
