Hospital Report Card – Complaint Process


Brattleboro Memorial Hospital’s Commitment to Excellence: Resolution Process

Brattleboro Memorial Hospital recognizes patient complaints as an important aspect of a Quality/Patient Safety Program. The goal of an effective resolution process is to address the complaints in a timely manner, seek solutions to the problems and implement actions to improve the care and services delivered to patients. To this effort Brattleboro Memorial Hospital maintains a system to track, trend and respond to patient comments, complaints and grievances to support the hospital mission of quality health services, maintain patient rights and to reduce the risk of loss.

Brattleboro Memorial Hospital is committed to providing an exceptional experience for our patients and their families. In order to achieve that, we need to know what we are doing well and where we need to improve. If you would like to share your story with us, please contact:
