Reporting Other Health Care Concerns

At times, some incidents may not meet the definition of a critical incident but patients or their families may still want to report the incident and have it investigated.

For concerns about care other than critical incidents, contact your health care provider, their manager or the regional health authority.

For concerns related to abuse in hospitals or personal care homes, contact the Protection for Persons in Care Office.
For concerns regarding discrimination, patients can contact the The Manitoba Human Rights Commission.

If you believe a law has been broken related to your care, you can contact the The Manitoba Ombudsman.

Manitoba’s health professions each have a governing body under the law that deals with concerns about the conduct of their members. If you have a complaint about the conduct on a regulated health professional, you can contact their regulatory body:
