Complaints & Grievances

Patient Relations

Patients may communicate complaints to hospital representatives by verbally addressing a staff member, by calling a Patient Relations Representative at 504.592.6898, the department director/manager or the administrative supervisor. The patient and/or their representative maintain the right to report their complaint or grievance to any state or federal regulatory agency governing healthcare organization or the Joint Commission at any time.

We recognize our responsibility and duty to respond in an expeditious and appropriate manner and will make every effort to resolve the complaint or grievance to the patient’s satisfaction.
