Compliance and Confidentiality

Hospital employees and health care professionals possess sensitive, privileged information about patients and their care. Patients properly expect that this information will be kept confidential. The Hospital takes very seriously any violation of a patient's confidentiality. Discussing a patient's medical condition, or providing any information about patients to anyone other than Hospital personnel who need the information and other authorized persons, will have serious consequences for an employee. Employees should not discuss patients outside the Hospital or with their families. The Compliance Officer or the Director of Human Resources can provide employees with further information regarding compliance and can direct questions to the proper person.
