The Office of the Ombuds for the University of California's medical campus has created a short survey to solicit feedback from visitors. The questionnaire is a one-page pdf that users print and return by mail. The survey uses a typical five-level Likert scale for these questions:
- I was able to speak to someone/ schedule an appointment in a reasonable amount of time.
- The role of the Ombuds Office was clearly explained to me.
- The Ombuds Officer listened to my questions and concerns.
- I was treated respectfully and professionally by the Ombuds.
- The Ombuds Officer helped me identify and evaluate the options to address my concerns.
- I trust the Ombuds Officer to maintain confidentiality.
- I feel the Ombuds Officer did all s/he could to facilitate a fair process for the resolution of my dispute, conflict, or complaint.
- Regardless of the outcome of my situation, my experience with the Ombuds Office was helpful.
- I was satisfied with my overall experience with the Ombuds Officer.
- I would refer others to the Ombuds Office for help in resolving disputes, conflicts, or complaints.
