The provision of quality health services is a crucial competitive advantage of health service providers. Nursing care plays a major role in the health care services. Orthopaedic patients require a greater level of care as a result of several possible complications, increased vulnerability, potential cardio-pulmonary compromise and requirement of general concerns. The study therefore compared nursing care satisfaction among orthopaedic patients in two selected teaching hospitals in Osun State. The study adopted the descriptive research design of the survey type. The population study comprised all patients scheduled for elective and emergency, Orthopaedics surgeries in Obafemi Awolowo University Teaching Hospitals Complex (OAUTHC), Ile-Ife and Ladoke Akintola University Teaching Hospital (LAUTECH), Osogbo during the study period. All the available patients were recruited within two months of data collection. A standardized tool of the Patient Satisfaction with Nursing Care Quality Questionnaire (PSNCQQ) was adapted for data collection. The instrument was validated by subjecting it to be reviewed by experts of nursing education and Tests & Measurement. The findings of the study revealed that 66.0% of the patients in OAUTHC had moderate level of satisfaction with nursing while 62.5% of the patients in LAUTECH also had moderate level of satisfaction with nursing. It was also revealed that there was no difference in patient’s level of satisfaction with nursing care in OAUTHC and LAUTECH. It was recommended among others that nursing care in the two hospitals (OAUTHC and LAUTECH) in Osun State should be adequately improved so as to achieve high level of the patient’s satisfaction with nursing care.
