The waiting time for prescription service is still a problem in hospital which ultimately leads to dissatisfaction to the quality of health service. According to the Minister of Health Regulation no. 129 of 2008, the prescribed waiting time for drug concoctions is 60 minutes and for prescription of finished drugs is 30 minutes. Based on the data from Gotong Royong Hospital Surabaya, related to the waiting time of pharmaceutical service, there were 2.3% of drug concoctions that exceeded the standard of pharmaceutical service (> 60 minutes) and 1.8% of finished-drugs prescription that exceeded the standard of pharmaceutical service (> 30 minutes). It led to patient dissatisfaction which could be seen from the number of incoming complaints. This research aims to analyze the correlation between the waiting time of pharmaceutical service and patient satisfaction.
