We strive to maintain a professional and compliant atmosphere. However, issues can arise. The Grievance Procedure is a means for patients and related parties to inquire into issues raised, and identify whether action needs to be taken to resolve identified issues and prevent recurrence. The Facility Administrator will record the grievance complaint and conduct a prompt investigation for quick resolution. Any patient and/or support person, visitor, employee, physician, or vendor may lodge a grievance using the Center's procedure to formally voice complaints, resolve disputes, or to bring attention to possible violations of patient rights. No person shall be punished or retaliated against for using the Grievance Procedure. Any grievances, comments and complaints are addressed to the Facility Administrator. Complete details and a copy of the Center's Grievance Policy, as well as a Grievance form may be obtained by contacting the Facility Administrator at (718) 708-5777.
Per NY DOH regulation 751.9, the center is required to provide the patient or his/her designee with a written response to their grievance within 30 days if requested by the patient indicating the findings of the investigation.
