What to Do If You Have a Concern about the Quality of Care from a Maine Doctor, Hospital, or Nursing Home

Advice and resources for dealing with quality concerns
For many of us, our health providers are among the most important people in our lives.  We trust them to help keep us well or care for us when we're sick.  There are thousands of health care providers in Maine, and most provide high-quality care to their patients.  There are times, however, when people have concerns about the quality of care they or their loved ones receive.  If this happens to you, these tip sheets can help.  They give you:

Practical advice about what to do and who to talk with, including phone numbers and addresses
Links to resources that can help

These tip sheet explains steps you can take to deal with your concerns about quality.  They tell you how to contact places that regulate or oversee health care providers.  You can also consider filing a lawsuit, but that is not the focus of these tip sheets.
