Complaint Procedures

If you feel your rights, as outlined in this handbook, have been violated and you have not been able to resolve the problem through discussion with staff members, you should follow these guidelines.

  1. Contact your advocate or the ADMH Office of Rights Protection & Advocacy Services at 1-800-367-0955
  2. Explain to the advocate which right you feel was violated and give the full details of the incident.
  3. After the advocate has completed his/her investigation, the advocate will discuss his/her findings with you so that you can decide if you want to go any further with your complaint. You may appeal an advocate’s findings to the ADMH Office of Rights Protection & Advocacy Services.
  4. If violations of your rights continue, notify your advocate.
  5. Patient abuse complaints should be reported to THSMF Security Services by asking for an officer to be called.

Alabama Disabilities Advocacy Program: 1-800-826-1675
Tuscaloosa County Department of Human Resources: 205-554-1100

Note: If you wish to use an attorney of your choice to take other legal actions about your complaint, you may do so without fear of harm, discharge, etc.

If you or your family has a complaint related to safety or quality of care, we encourage you to immediately notify a THSMF staff member (treatment team member, police officer, administration, etc.) so that we can review the issue. However, if you choose, you may report complaints in these areas to The Joint Commission.
