How to Say Thank You

young patient and doctorWe hope that you will be pleased with the care that your child receives at American Family Children's Hospital.
 
We find that many families choose to express their gratitude with a gift for caregivers. While this is a very kind gesture, we have made it our policy at this hospital not to accept personal gifts.
 
It is our belief that providing care to your child is its own reward.
 
The best gift you can give is your open feedback about your child and family’s experience. You will receive a patient satisfaction form in the mail a few weeks after discharge. Please complete the survey honestly. Your responses are completely anonymous.
 
We value your feedback and strive to improve our care based on your comments.
 
If you would like to recognize an outstanding nurse, consider nominating him or her for the DAISY Award. This nationwide program, which was implemented at UW Hospital and Clinics and American Family Children's Hospital in 2012, rewards remarkable care, clinical skills and extraordinary compassion in nursing.
