SC Health Facilities Licensing Bureau offers a way for you to make a complaint against a South Carolina-licensed health care facility. It is recommended that you exhaust all resources trying to resolve your complaint with the licensed facility prior to making a complaint. If that route is unsuccessful, then the SC Health Facilities Licensing Bureau will provide you with assistance.
If you are complaining of abuse in a facility, you need to make your complaint DIRECTLY to the office of the Lieutenant Governor's Office on Aging.
While complaints made anonymously are accepted by the bureau, you will not be kept informed of the outcome of the investigation due to lack of contact information.
You may file your complaint online here. Otherwise, you will need to complete the DHEC Form 0284 Complaint Form along with any documentation supporting your complaint and email/mail or fax in your complaint.

I was involved in an accident with an uninsured driver, so I contacted the attorney that I had used in a previous case. I explained to them the situation and they advised me that there was no way that I would be able to recover anything so they would not take my case. I then contacted Charles Monnett & Associates and they accepted my case and I am happy to say that their expert staff was able to settle my case with the insurance companies for $128,000.
In October 2010, my pregnant wife and I were in a horrendous accident in Charlotte, NC, caused by a drunk driver. We were struck head on by the driver traveling at nearly 100mph and sustained many life threatening injuries. We lost our unborn baby and were fighting to stay alive ourselves. This is not a time we could even think about an attorney, but fortunately, people we care about found Mr. Monnett! This incredible man visited us in the hospital at our request and made everything so easy for us during such a trying time. There's not another person on earth with whom I would trust such an important endeavor. His experience and knowledge overshadowed the defense by leaps and bounds. Mr. Monnett remained steadfast and confident throughout the process, while ultimately prevailing, it was amazing. I offer my highest recommendation to this great man and his top notch firm.
Charles Monnett was very helpful and lead me through the whole legality of my case. Charles was always available and informative on this process.
