4 Accessibility: by phone by writing Fax Mail Website In cooperation with: -Supervisors of “care for the Elderly” team -Inspectorate

5 RIF receives: Information Notifications Complaints

6 Notification in case of: Anonymous complaints without the residents’ safety being threatened. An inspection has already been instructed, ie. for another complaint or as part of the recognition process. In case of a recent regular inspection having resulted in a positive report. For instance: complainant states occupational therapy is lacking, but inspection report states occupational therapy is sufficient, and there is no staff shortage.. Complaints which can only be determined with great difficulty or not at all. Subjective complaints: ie: food contains too much pepper, unpleasant smell in cafetaria.

7 . Complainant wants to wait before officially lodging a complaint, ie. wants to talk to management first. Notification then seeks to establish whether anything has been resolved.. Complaints that can no longer be redressed but imply no direct danger to residents. Complaint can be resolved by RIF (ie. wrong monthly invoice, written contract not according to legislation.) Inspectorate is notified in order to establish whether the problem has really been solved as agreed between RIF and care provider. (ie.has the written contract been adapted and been presented to all residents?)
