Understanding your rights as a health care patient

When you go to your doctor, you may uphold the same belief as many other people; that your wellbeing is solely in the hands of the people caring for you. While this is true to a point, you also have patient rights. These entitlements are designed to protect you and give you the highest possible chance at receiving quality and compassionate care. At Futterman, Sirotkin & Seinfeld, LLP, we have helped many people in New York to effectively deal with the consequences of medical malpractice. 

Whether you are visiting the doctor for the first time in a while, or simply looking for information about your rights, understanding how you should be treated is invaluable in helping you detect when you are being treated unfairly. According to verywellhealth.com, some of the rights that you are entitled to include the following:

  • To have your medical records be kept completely confidential. 
  • To be treated in a manner that is respectful and civil. 
  • To deny any kind of treatment that you are not comfortable receiving. 
  • To have access to your medical records in their entirety. 
  • To have the option to sign a consent form when receiving any type of treatment. 
  • To give your opinion and make critical decisions regarding end-of-life treatment options. 

By understanding your rights, you can assess whether or not your health care provider is violating the things you are entitled to. If you are being mistreated, it is crucial that you switch medical providers right away. For more information about medical malpractice, visit our web page.
