Compliments & Concerns

Thank you for the opportunity to care for you or your loved one. During the time you spend with us, we hope that we will meet your needs and exceed your expectations.

If you have compliments or concerns, please ask to speak with the nurse in charge or the manager. After normal business hours or during weekends and holidays, please ask to speak with the nursing supervisor.

If the staff, manager or supervisor is not able to address your concerns, please ask to speak with the Patient Advocate (259-5451, Ext. 725) or the Administrator-on-Call.
