Background and Aim: Burn is a risk, which threatens human beings every day in various forms. It is one of the most destructive injuries, associated with various physical and psychological complications. Burn affects the quality of life and life satisfaction . Evaluation of life satisfaction is very important due to its close relationship with physical and mental health. Given the high prevalence of burn in Iran and the presence of challenges in the treatment and rehabilitation of these patients, we decided to conduct this research to evaluate the life satisfaction in burned patients, admitted to Burn Injuries and Reconstructive Surgery Center in Rasht.

Methods: In this descriptive-analytical research, 379 burned patients were included in the study using convenient sampling method. The Diner Life Satisfaction Questionnaire was used to collect the data. Data were analyzed using descriptive and analytical statistics. The significance level was considered to be less than 0.05.

Results: Most of the subjects were male (64.1%) and had high level of education (34.6%). Also, most of them returned to their previous jobs (83.4%). Most of patients (48.5%) were satisfied with their life and the variables of lodging (P<0.0001), educational level (P<0.0001), marital status after burn (P=0.05), pre-burn job (P=0.016), post-burn job (P=0.014), skin graft (P<0.0001) and insurance (P<0.0001) were considered as predictive variables related to life satisfaction.

Conclusion: Since burn injury was expected to cause more than obtained dissatisfaction , other factors such as the power of faith and satisfaction with divine providence, high life expectancy, etc may influence their state of satisfaction. Thus, it is recommended that supporting and charity institutions (such as welfare, relief committee, IRIB, etc.) provide more support for these patients. It is also recommended that programs and classes with advisory and educational content be held for patients and their families.
