Patients and families may have complaints about care. Sometimes, these are difficult to address at the hospice level. These resources address Georgia health and safety guidelines or ask about patient rights.

Complaints About Patient Rights?
Family First Hospice Care commits to diverse, fair, inclusive practices.
If you think you or someone else has been treated unfairly, we encourage you to speak up. For example, hospice patients can not be refused care on the basis of race, color, national origin, disability, age, sex, conscience, or religion. Also, if you believe that Family First did not uphold patient privacy rights (HIPAA), you may file a complaint. To do this, contact the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Civil Rights:
