Comments and Suggestions

It is the policy of Student Health Services to encourage students and/or families to express any concern relating to the quality of care provided, quality of service delivered, or any other valid concern. Students and families may voice complaints and recommend changes in policies and services, and in doing so can be assured that this shall in no way compromise the patient's rights or future access to care.

Concerns may be voiced to a health care provider or any other Student Health Service staff member. If unsatisfied with the outcome of this exchange, or there is preference to register the complaint in another manner, the suggestion boxes located at the main entrance, in the Pharmacy, and in the After-Hours Clinic may be used or concerns may be voiced to the Administrative Director of Health Services. An electronic suggestion box can be used by clicking the 'Suggestions" icon at the bottom of the web pages. All complaints will be reviewed through the CQI Program in an effort to improve and enhance the quality of care and services provided.
