Your Rights

Patients seeking care at KishHealth System can expect to have their rights protected and met. This includes your right to personal and informational respect, privacy, and confidentiality regarding your condition and care.

  • You can expect to participate in decision-making and impartial treatment regardless of your race, sex, religion, creed, or nationality.
  • You can expect to know the names and identity of the individuals providing your care.
  • Information such as Advance Care Directives and an itemized bill will be provided to you, as well as a grievance process.
  • We recognize that some people refuse to receive a blood transfusion for religious reasons or for personal choice. If you do not wish to receive blood, tell your surgeon about your objections before you are scheduled for surgery. When you get to the hospital, you will sign a form that documents your refusal to receive a blood transfusion or blood products. It is important for the anesthesia provider to know about your objections before the day of surgery to help create a plan for alternatives to blood.

  • This includes providing your Power of Attorney or Advanced Directives, when appropriate.
  • Let us know your expectations and if you have questions about your instructions.
  • Have an adult who can transport you home and remain with you for 24 hours.
  • You are responsible for your own actions, even when they do not agree with the medical advice you are receiving, and accepting/assuring financial responsibility for your medical expenses.
