All services at FBR cooperate in distributing surveys to clients, employees and referral sources as guided by the QI Team. Surveys are distributed within a stamped and addressed envelope with the corporate address (to the attention of the QI Department) for the clients and employees to send back.
Consumers, staff members, and referring agencies will also be given the opportunity to complete these surveys online through SurveyMonkey.
All surveys will be logged and reviewed quarterly. The QI Team will meet with the Quality Council to discuss results and outcomes with action plans to be devised as necessary. Surveys for intakes and discharges will be implemented in the same manner across programs.
Your input is crucial and valuable to us. Please take a moment to fill out one of our surveys if you are a current or past consumer, or a referral source to FBR.
