Patient Privacy & Consent

Notice of Health Information Practices

Each time you visit a hospital, physician, or other healthcare provider, a record of your visit is made. Typically, this record contains your symptoms, examination and test results, diagnoses, treatment, and a plan for future care or treatment. How this information, often referred to as your health or medical record, may be used and disclosed and how you can get access to this information is explained in our Notice of Health Information Practices.

Informed Consent

As a patient, you have the right to “Informed Consent.” This means that your physician will explain the advantages and risks of procedures, tests or treatments. You have the right to refuse any treatment. If the reason for some part of your care is unclear to you, please ask your physician or nurse to explain it to you.

Advance Directives

Adventist HealthCare Shady Grove Medical Center recognizes the right of adult patients to make informed decisions regarding their care and treatment. “Advance Directives” are decisions, written or communicated in advance of an incapacitating event, regarding the patient's choices about treatment and/or regarding the selection of a health care agent who will make decisions on the patient's behalf. It is the responsibility of the patient or the family to submit a copy of the Advance Directive to the hospital.
