What is Whistleblowing?
CMH staff, physicians and volunteers are often the first to know when something is going seriously wrong. A culture of turning a "blind eye" to such problems can lead to serious damage when those in charge do not have a chance to take action. Whistleblowing can therefore be described as exposing wrongdoing and practices that are potentially illegal.
If you wish to submit information about potentially illegal or underhanded practices, please complete the form below, or make a confidential appointment with our Director, Patient Experience, Risk & Quality or send a letter to:
Cambridge Memorial Hospital
Attn: Director, Patient Experience, Risk & Quality
700 Coronation Blvd.
- Your submission is 100% anonymous unless you choose to complete the "Contact Information" section of the form. Your name and address will not appear in the email address line when the form is submitted. Anonymous concerns will be investigated to the extent possible and reasonable based on the level of detail provided in the complaint.
- Once the form is submitted, it is sent directly to the Director, Patient Experience, Risk & Quality who will begin an investigation on behalf of the President & Chief Executive Officer (CEO).
- Do not complete this form if you do not wish your information to be received by the President & CEO. If your complaint is about the President and CEO, please send a letter describing your concerns or make a confidential appointment with the Director, Patient Experience, Risk & Quality.
- As with any email sent from anywhere in the world, messages delivered over the Internet can be opened and read by unintended parties. This risk is very, very small. If this is a concern for you, please send a letter or make a confidential appointment with the Director, Patient Experience, Risk & Quality.
