Patient Feedback Tools

We also have a number of feedback tools for you to provide information about the care and service you receive. Please take the time to participate in and use these feedback tools. Our goal is to provide compassionate, quality care in a timely manner focusing on your experience.

Thanks for a Job Well Done Card

Your feedback about the care and services you receive while in the medical center provides us an opportunity to make changes and improvements. Feedback gives you the opportunity to make a suggestion, and correct problems or give a compliment. These cards are located in all clinics throughout the hospital, at the lobby Information Desk and in the Veteran Experience office.

TruthPoint and your Healthcare Experience

During your stay, you may be surveyed by one of our medical center staff members. This is a short patient satisfaction survey asking for feedback about your perception of the care you are receiving.

You may answer your survey anonymously, or you may provide your name and contact information if you would like us to contact you about the resolution of any issues.

Patient Healthcare Experience Survey

Your medical center tracks more than 20 inpatient and outpatient experiences including:

  • Cleanliness of the facility
  • Staff communication, teamwork and courtesy
  • Medication administration
  • And other health care-related experiences

After your visit, you may receive a confidential questionnaire in the mail asking you about your most recent outpatient or inpatient treatment at our medical center.

Please use the survey to let us know of any concerns, complaints, or questions you have about your care, so that we can resolve them. We also appreciate compliments about what we are doing right.
