The Board investigates all complaints filed to the Board.  These complaints may come from various sources including patients/clients, family members, other health professionals, hospitals and employers. 

The Board strongly encourages complaints to be submitted in writing, preferably using the Board's complaint form listed above.  However, the Board will accept complaints verbally, if filing a written complaint is impractical or would create undue delay.  When submitting a complaint to the Board, please be as specific as possible.

If the complaint falls within the Board’s authority, the Board will investigate to determine whether there has been a violation of statutes/rules.
