Background Information

The Vermont Division of Licensing and Protection (DLP) has asked for the Vermont Program for Quality in Health Care's (VPQHC) assistance in an effort to capture candid responses on the survey/complaint investigation process in hospitals, long-term care facilities and home health agencies.

This survey is available to any staff involved in the survey/investigation process. No identifying information will be collected, and all results will be kept confidential and aggregated by VPQHC periodically. The intent of the survey is to improve survey experiences for both facilities and surveyors - this will not be used to penalize facilities nor to facilitate individual performance evaluation on behalf of DLP.

At the end of the survey, you will be given the opportunity to provide additional comments/feedback for any items not covered, or to provide supplemental information on a previous response.

Should there be concerns with survey staff, or the survey process, please contact Suzanne Leavitt directly at:
(802) 241-0346

Thank you for participating in our survey. Your feedback is important.
