The result of the study indicates that there is a positive linear relationship between sex of patients has effect on their perception towards the quality of service received. The coefficient of correlation(r=0.098) is weak. Though, the relationship is weak but it is positive, HRM on Total Quality Management raises the level service received by patient variance is being explained only 1% (r2 = 0.010), though significant at < 0.05. The analysis from the empirical findings showed that irrespective of cadre of the employee, it does not affect their perception about the impact of HRM on TQM.
