HOSPITAL AND CLINICS

No one likes to be sick or go to the hospital, however it is sometimes a necessary thing. One helpful hint for an upcoming patient is to know your rights as a patient in the hospital and what to do if problems crop up. Here are some tips on what patients should expect their rights to be when being treated at any hospital or clinic, and where to go for assistance if things go wrong. Here is a list of patients rights that I learned the importance of while working 22 years at a local Hospital.

Patients Right #1 - To expect complete privacy of the medical information provided to the hospital and of all aspects of their care.

Patients Right #2 -To request a second opinion of any and all treatment that is suggested or done while in the hospital.

Patients Right #3 - To be treated with compassion and respect at all times while being treated.

Patients Right #4 -To be kept informed of all treatment and its outcome and be allowed to determine if the patient does or does not wish said treatment.

Patients Right #5 -To have family members or another person involved in their medical care and decisions at the patient's request. This is usually accomplished with an advanced directive. The advance directive can be filled out at the hospital or with your attorney prior to admission.

Patients Right #6 - Every patient has the right to be given effective communication and written information appropriate to their ability to understand. That means if an interpreter or written information in a different language is needed it shall be provided.

Patients Right #7 - Every patient has the right to be given information regarding reasonable alternatives to their care.

Patients Right #8 - Every patient has the right to refuse medical treatment and surgical treatment even if this means forgoing life-sustaining treatment.

Patients Right #9 -All patients have the right to be treated in a safe setting free of abuse or harassment and neglect.

Patients Right #10 - Al patients have the right to have access to their medical and clinical notes, lab and x-ray information a full disclosure of all charges itemized regarding their care.
