As soon as we step into this world we assume some rights as human beings. In our hospital everyone is considered free, honoured and equal. Your patient rights are fundamental to everything we do.
Whilst protecting your own rights it must also be remembered that other patients and staff also enjoy the same protection and your behaviour should never violate their rights.
Should you feel dissatisfied we would ask you to be polite and clearly state your objection and expectation. If you believe your rights have been infinged we offer a soluion through our patients rights communication unit, director of hospital services, director of hospital or chief physician without the need of confonting any employee who you consider to be responsible.
UNDERAGE PATIENT RIGHTS:
Patients who do not have decision making competence may use a legal representative. Every effort will be made to keep the patient informed and, when appropriate, approval sought.
Should a life threatening situation arise, the physicians will intervene for the benefit of the patient even if a legal representative refuses treatment.
