Compliments / Complaints
We welcome compliments and feedback relating to your stay with us and we encourage all patients to complete the feedback form that is located at your bedside. This enables us to evaluate and improve our services to our patients. Questionnaires are anonymous, however, if you wish to write a specific and signed letter, your points will be acknowledged and dealt with personally.
Patient satisfaction surveys are conducted independently of the hospital by Press Ganey Associates. If you are surveyed, your inclusion in these surveys is voluntary. We would appreciate your assistance if you are asked to participate.
If you are concerned about your care of the hospital services, please do not hesitate to contact the Nursing Unit Manager on the ward, or alternatively, our Patient Advocate on 9400 9672. Complaints can be received by writing a letter, by telephone, in person or through our survey system.
An on-site Florist provides a fantastic selection of flowers, gifts, cards and balloons.
If you require the services of an Interpreter during your stay with us, your doctor needs to indicate this at the time your visit to hospital is booked.
Pastoral care staff and volunteers are dedicated to their task for those in need. Their task is to actively listen, support and accompany patients, family members, visitors and staff on their journey towards healing. They attempt to be present, respectful and compassionate. Team members offer an attitude of non-judgement and gentle guidance through appraisal of wellbeing, personal rapport, spiritual counsel, public prayer and bedside rituals. As part of the holistic approach to patient care, the team has established a wide referral source with hospitals, nursing homes and churches of all denominations in the northern suburbs and beyond.

The Companions of JHC provide assistance in most wards and many departments of the campus through the Volunteer Program.
Our volunteers make two daily trolley visits - one with sweets, emergency toiletries, some magazines and the daily paper, and the other for distribution of donated books or magazines. Suitable reading material in the ED is refreshed from this trolley.
Wards also receive regular help with simple non-medical tasks from the volunteers, and they may also spend time with patients.
Our volunteer program is approved and registered as a non-profit organisation by the Department of Fair Trading. All volunteers are required to have a police clearance and sign a declaration of confidentiality and conflict of interest document.
