SECTION 504 DISABILITY DISCRIMINATION
GRIEVANCE POLICY


It is the policy of Richland Parish Hospital not to discriminate on the basis of disability. RICHLAND PARISH HOSPITAL has adopted an internal grievance procedure providing for prompt and equitable resolution of complaints alleging any action prohibited by Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (29 U.S.C. 794) or the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services regulations implementing the Act. Section 504 states, in part, that "no otherwise qualified handicapped individual...shall, solely by reason of his handicap, be excluded from the participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance..." The Law and Regulations may be examined in the office of (Alisha Murphrey RN,DON 318-878-6329 ,Section 504 Coordinator, 407 Cincinnati Street Delhi,La.71232), who has been designated to coordinate the efforts of Richland Parish Hospital to comply with Section 504.

Any person who believes she or he has been subjected to discrimination on the basis of disability may file a grievance under this procedure. It is against the law for Richland Parish Hospital to retaliate against anyone who files a grievance or cooperates in the investigation of a grievance.

  • Grievances must be submitted to the Section 504 Coordinator within 3 days of the date the person filing the grievance becomes aware of the alleged discriminatory action. 
  • A complaint must be in writing, containing the name and address of the person filing it. The complaint must state the problem or action alleged to be discriminatory and the remedy or relief sought.
  • The Section 504 Coordinator (or her/his designee) shall conduct an investigation of the complaint. This investigation may be informal, but it must be thorough, affording all interested persons an opportunity to submit evidence relevant to the complaint. The Section 504 Coordinator will maintain the files and records of RICHLAND PARISH HOSPITAL relating to such grievances.
  • The Section 504 Coordinator will issue a written decision on the grievance no later than 30 days after its filing.
  • The person filing the grievance may appeal the decision of the Section 504 Coordinator by writing to the Administrator, Michael Carroll, 407 Cincinnati Street Delhi,La. 71232 within 15 days of receiving the Section 504 Coordinator's decision.
  • The Administrator shall issue a written decision in response to the appeal no later than 30 days after its filing.
  • The availability and use of this grievance procedure does not prevent a person from filing a complaint of discrimination on the basis of disability with the U. S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office for Civil Rights , U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 1301 Young Street Suite 1169 Dallas,TX 75202 , 1-800-368-1019(voice) or 1-800-537-7697(TDD).

RICHLAND PARISH HOSPITAL will make appropriate arrangements to ensure that disabled persons are provided other accommodations if needed to participate in this grievance process.
