The Office of Patient Relations understands health care and its best practices, and strives to help make sure patients understand what treatment they are receiving and why. The office rounds with patients to ensure they are having a good stay. If there are issues, they endeavor to resolve them immediately. If an issue cannot be immediately resolved, the office investigates it and contacts the patient later with the findings.
At a patient’s request, the Office of Patient Relations will become involved in improving communication, assessing information, addressing concerns and resolving difficulties such as scheduling problems or wait-time issues. The office can also respond to patient rights questions, assist with billing problems related to care, and physician and treatment-related issues.
The Office of Patient Relations will gladly assist if you are experiencing difficulty during your hospital stay or visit or if you have questions or concerns about any aspect of care or service. St. Peter’s realizes hospitalization and illness can be very stressful and disruptive for the patient and family.
The ultimate goal of the Office of Patient Relations is for better communication between the patient and hospital so each patient is confident that he or she is receiving good care.
Contact the Office of Patient Relations when you do not know whom to ask for help. Confidentiality is highly respected and maintained; the focus is on the best interest of the patient.
