Patients complain for many reasons, but usually in response to something they perceive has gone wrong. Generally, a patient with a complaint seeks an explanation or further information. It is important to remember that what the patient perceives as an adverse event may be very different from what you consider to be an issue.
Patients generally complain because they perceive that something has gone wrong. They may also complain because of an unmet expectation or because there was a breakdown in communication.
