Abstract: 

Respect for the design guidelines of building environments is a complex subject that is associated with cultural and economic development of human societies. Therefore, accurately measuring users’ favorites of environment design is an essential subject for optimizing the relationship between environmental and personal parameters. The purpose and aim of this study was to investigate patients’ satisfaction with outdoor and indoor environment dimensions, and it was performed in one of the hospitals in Isfahan City in Iran in 2015. Data were collected from all hospital wards by questionnaire and environmental health checklist. This questionnaire included questions about patients ‘satisfaction with indoor and outdoor environment dimensions of the hospital. Statistical tests including the independent samplest -test, Pearson's Correlation test, Spearman correlation test, and paired sample t-test were applied by Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS). According to these results, the mean of total satisfactory scores from indoor and outdoor spaces were 62.3% and 80.5%, respectively. Paired samplet -test showed that the average satisfactory score of patients from outdoor view was significantly higher than for indoor view (P<0.001). Among outdoor-view items, the lowest and highest satisfactory scores were allocated to disruptive and constructive activities (31.7%) and green natural space (69.4%), respectively, while, among indoor view items, the lowest and highest satisfactory scores were allocated to access to sanitation/cleanliness of toilets (21%) and lighting (63.3%), respectively. Obtained results showed that the mean total scores of satisfaction from outdoor and indoor environments were at an acceptable level.
