Patient-perceived quality of inpatient/outpatient psychiatric care remains under-researched. A cross-sectional survey with purposive sampling comprising 567 inpatients and 549 outpatients was conducted among eight psychiatric care facilities in Taiwan to examine the factors influencing patient-perceived care quality. Inpatients and outpatients perceived moderate quality of care, where “Encounter” was reported as the highest dimension. Inpatients perceived “Secure environment” as the lowest; outpatients rated “Discharge/Referring” as the lowest. Hospital region and customer loyalty were significantly associated with patient-perceived care quality. Other significant factors were also identified: inpatient employment, perceived mental health and treatment effects, understanding diagnosis, previous treatment, and visited by appointment.
