The purpose of this cross-sectional, descriptive, correlational study were to examine the maintenance of individualized care from patients' point of view and examines associations between individualized care, patient satisfaction with nursing care, and health-related quality of life. The study sample consisted of 54 discharged patients from neurosurgical clinic who met the inclusion criteria and agreed to participate in the study . Data were collected using Individualized Care Scales, Patient Satisfaction Scale, and Nottingham Health Profile. The data obtained were assessed using descriptive statistics and correlation analysis. The findings shown that individualized care was provided for the neurosurgical patients.The more often patients felt they received support for individuality through specific nursing interventions, the higher the individuality of care received. The more individualized patients regarded their care, the higher the level of reported patient satisfaction with nursing care. However, the correlation between individualized care and health-related quality of life was fairly low.
