Outpatient Services East has established a grievance procedure for documenting the existence, submission, investigation and disposition of a patient’s written or verbal grievance to our surgery center.
Patients are ensured that all alleged violations/grievances relating, but not limited to mistreatment, neglect, verbal, mental, sexual, or physical abuse will be fully documented and investigated according to center policy.
Grievances shall be managed primarily, depending on the cases, as follows: (1) report to a person in authority at OSE; (2) Specify date of incident, description of event, and circumstances. OSE will respond to the patient acknowledging receipt of grievance within a 36 hour period.
An investigation will be initiated for all grievances made by the patient or their representative regarding the treatment or care provided.
OSE will document how the grievance was addressed and then inform the patient of the steps taken, the results of the process and the date of completion.
The results of the investigation will be reported to the patient within (7) seven business days of completion of the investigation.
