VAMC Milwaukee strives to always provide the highest quality of care to the veterans of our nation who call Greater Milwaukee and Wisconsin home. We recognize there may be times when a patient or family member has an issue which requires our attention. Because the best time to let us know of any concern or question is at the time it happens — so we can resolve it as quickly as possible — we have established several programs to assist you.
No matter which service you visit when you come to VAMC Milwaukee, you will always be able to find one of our many service partners. The service partner can address and resolve your concern at the point of contact.
VAMC Miwlaukee has on staff two highly-skilled patient representatives and a patient relations assistant who are eager to help you with your concern in a timely manner. The Patient Representatives —
- serve as liaisons between patients and the medical center
- act on the patient's behalf
- help patients understand their rights and responsibilities
Our patient representatives are located on the 1st floor of the Administration building.
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.
During your stay, you may receive a 'quickcard'. This is a short patient satisfaction survey asking for feedback about your perception of the care you are receiving.
You may answer your quickcard anonymously, or you may provide your name and contact information if you would like us to contact you about the resolution of any issues.
Survey of Healthcare Experience of Patients
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.
