Student Health Center (SHC) Patient Rights and Responsibilities
The SHC provides every patient with optimal health care in a non-judgmental manner regardless of gender, race, sexual orientation, national origin, or disability. The SHC is committed to a patient's rights and privacy. Individuals eligible to use the health service have the right to be treated with consideration, respect, and dignity. A patient has the right to seek a second opinion on his or her medical condition and to be fully informed about his or her treatment, options, and prognosis.
A patient's responsibilities include providing the health care provider with accurate health information as well as communicating his or her concerns openly and actively participating in his or her own care.
Written authorization from the patient is necessary to release his or her health records. A patient's records are protected by state and federal statutes.
