Patient Responsibilities

We feel you and your family are important in helping our team in your care and recovery. Please cooperate with the staff in your treatment and observe hospital regulations established for the mutual benefit of every patient.

Provision of Information
You have the responsibility to provide, to the best of your knowledge, accurate and complete information about present complaints, past illnesses, hospitalizations, medications and other matters relating to your health. You have the responsibility to report unexpected changes in your condition (symptoms) to your physician or nurse.

It is important that you understand your responsibility in asking questions if you do not clearly understand any part of your treatment plan and what is expected of you.

Compliance with Instructions

You are responsible for following the treatment plan recommended by the physician primarily responsible for your care. This may include following the instructions of nurses and health personnel as they carry out the coordinated plan of care, implement the responsible physician’s orders and enforce hospital rules and regulations. You are responsible for keeping appointments. When you are unable to do so for any reason, you are responsible for notifying the responsible physician or the hospital.

Treatment Issues
You have the right to refuse treatment and to be informed of the medical consequences. However, you are responsible for your actions if you refuse treatment or do not follow the physician’s instructions. Likewise, it is your responsibility not to demand treatment or services that your physician has deemed medically unnecessary or inappropriate.​

Our goal is to deliver the best possible care to every patient entering our hospital. Each of our patients and their families are important to us. As a community hospital, we are pleased to be able to offer not only progressive skilled services, but individualized care to our patients and their families.

We are constantly trying to improve our services, and are always interested in your ideas and suggestions to help us in maintaining quality patient care. Please take a few minutes and fill out the patient satisfaction survey you will be given at the end of your stay or feel free to talk to any of our staff about your concerns or suggestions on how our services could be improved.
