Therefore, this study was done to assess the children’s satisfaction themselves by drawing which is an applicable scale for them.Patients & methods: This study was done with 20 hospitalized children aged 6-12 This study was done with 20 hospitalized children aged 6-12 years in medical and surgical wards of Dr. Sheikh pediatrics hospital in Mashhad who were hospitalized at least for 2 days In order to gathering data a blank A4 size paper and 12 color pencils was given to participants and asked them to draw what they’ve been thinking about nursing and their interventions. Each drawing was analyzed based on Plander et al scale (2007). The scale has content validity and reliability of α=0.89.Results: Most of participants were boys (65), and hospitalized in medical wards (60).In patient’s room no entertainment tools, toys or even readings were drawn.
