We believe patients have the right to...

 

...medical treatment at Greene County Health Care regardless of race, religion, gender, national origin,  marital status, age, disabilities, or ability to pay.

 

...be treated with dignity and respect. The staff respects the patient’s mental, social, spiritual, and cultural values about health, illness and injury.

 

...know what his/her illness is, the treatment options and the advantages and disadvantages of each, help in making decisions about the treatment that he/she receives, and to know what complications the treatment is likely to cause in a language that is easily understood by the patient.

 

...receive from his/her provider information necessary to give informed consent prior to the start of any procedure and treatment. Patients who are unable to fully participate in treatment decisions have the right to be represented by parents, guardians, family members, or other conservators.

 

...refuse treatment to the extent permitted by the law and to be informed of the medical consequences of his/her actions.
