Frequently Asked Questions
1. What happens after I submit a complaint?
The information provided will be carefully reviewed against the applicable Alaska Administrative Rules and/or Code of Federal Regulations for the specific facility or agency type this complaint is about. The review will determine if there are potential violations of those requirements and if this is the office with jurisdiction to take further action. You will be notified in writing of the results of the review. The letter will inform you what action this office has authority to take, which may include an unannounced, onsite investigation. If it is determined that the concerns fall under the jurisdiction of another agency or organization the letter will provide you with that information.
2. Is my personal and complaint information kept confidential?
Your identity as the complainant is maintained confidentially. This office is prohibited from releasing complainant information and the complaint systems are designed to protect that anonymity.
3. If an investigation is completed, how do I see the results?
The Statement of Deficiencies report and the provider's Plan of Correction regarding a complaint investigation will be available for public disclosure no later than 90 calendar days from the date of the investigation.
