Clients Rights

If you have any concerns about the quality of services you are receiving or believe that your Client Rights have been violated, you may file a formal complaint.


Who Can Help Me
You may ask any Thompson staff member you know and trust to assist you in reporting a complaint/grievance verbally or in writing.


What Happens Next?

Your complaint will be submitted to the Performance & Quality Improvement Department to conduct an internal investigation. Results of that investigation will be reported to you and/or your legal guardian.


What Happens If I Do NOT Agree with Thompson’s Response to My Complaint?

You may file a formal complaint with any of the following External Regulatory Agencies at any time. If needed, a Thompson staff can assist you in this process.
