Patient Complaints and Grievances

Help Us Ensure We Honor Your Patient Rights

It’s our goal to provide exceptional health care to our patients. We recognize that some unplanned issues may arise. If you have a concern about any aspect of your care, please try to resolve the concern with your nurse first. The charge nurse or manager responsible for the unit also may be contacted.

If you or your loved one is currently a patient, please notify your nurse or the charge nurse about any safety or care concerns. If you feel that your concern was not adequately addressed or would like to speak with someone other than the unit staff, please contact the unit manager or our Patient Advocate during regular business hours.

If you wish to file a grievance for serious issues, please contact the Patient Advocate. Your issues will be investigated and addressed by the appropriate leadership personnel as well as reviewed by a Grievance Committee as soon as possible. You will receive written communication within seven days and ongoing communication until the process is complete.
