Making It Right: Healthcare Service Recovery Tools, Techniques, And Best Practices
What do you do when healthcare service fails?
How should you react when a patient complains or expresses concern?
It's one thing to make a mistake. It's another to add insult to injury by neglecting to address the problem, or by responding inappropriately.
In fact, the way your organization reacts when something goes wrong profoundly affects your patients' overall healthcare experience, and ultimately their satisfaction with your facility.
The success of any healthcare facility depends on an effective service recovery system.
Failure to resolve a patient's problem whether real or perceived or to make amends will result in an unhappy patient and a possible lawsuit.
Fortunately, it is possible to mitigate the impact of flawed healthcare service. By exceeding expectations in the way you address the situation, you can re-capture the loyalty of a wronged patient, and send your patient satisfaction scores through the roof.
