What To Do If You Have A Concern

The Ross Memorial has developed a tool to help patients and families discuss their concerns with the healthcare team. Read the Better Together Guide here, or ask a member of your healthcare team for a copy.

Are you interested in becoming a Patient & Family Experience Partner?

This year, the Hospital is hoping to grow its ranks of volunteers by recruiting people for an important task:  Patient and Family Experience Partners (PEP). These volunteers will act as advisors to the Hospital Team and provide input to help decision-making when changes are underway.

Patients and their loved ones have a unique perspective of the care and service they receive during their hospital stay. That perspective is invaluable whether the experience was a positive one – or not. What would have made their stay more comfortable? What information would have been helpful? If they had to go through it again, what would they do differently – or wish the Hospital did differently?

These insights are helping the Ross Memorial to improve the way it delivers care, every day.

The Hospital currently has Patient and Family Experience Partners on several committees, including the Medical Assistance in Dying Steering Committee, and the Better Together Patient and Family Engagement Committee.

Each patient care program at the Ross intends to recruit a Patient and Family Experience Partner over the next year to participate in improvement projects. Involvement may include having a long-term presence on committees, or it could be a short-term commitment involving the completion of surveys or the review of Hospital information to be sure it is clear and reader-friendly.

Those interested may apply by completing the Patient Experience Partner Application. You must also complete the Patient Experience Partner Reference Form.

Submit the completed application forms to the RMH Auxiliary’s Director of Volunteer Services via the Information Desk in the Hospital’s main lobby, or email them to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

Patient and Family Experience Partners will go through an interview process, including criminal record check, and orientation to understand Hospital policies, such as the promise to protect patient privacy. PEPs must have been patients, or family members of patients, within the last five years.
