Patient Rights

Patient Privacy

Natividad Medical Center adheres to Federal HIPAA privacy regulations to insure the privacy of our client’s Health Information. We have established safeguards to protect the confidentiality of medical information.

Patient Rights & Responsibilities

Every patient has rights and responsibilities. They apply to all of our patients without regard to gender, sexual orientation, culture, education, economics, religion, language, age, race, color, ancestry, national origin, presence of mental or physical disability, or the source of payment for your care. See our Printable PDF for a complete list of Patient Rights & Responsibilities.

Ethical Questions & Concerns

If you have questions or concerns about treatment choices or other issues that affect decision-making about a patient’s care the hospital’s Bioethics Committee is available to consult with patients, their loved ones, and the healthcare team. If you would like to request consultation by the Bioethics Committee, please contact your physician, nurse, case manager, chaplain, or any member of your care team. All consultations are advisory in nature.
