Client Responsibilities

 

1. Be open and honest with your therapist or doctor in order to get the most from treatment.

2. Be familiar with your rights as a citizen and, therefore, be responsible for making sure you are not denied your rights.

4. Ask questions any time you do not understand.

5. Keep your scheduled appointments.

1) The patient may obtain one free copy of the medical record by signing a request and submitting it to the Medical Records Department.

2) If information discloses that a violent act has occurred, is threatened or that abuse/neglect is suspected.

3) If the client or guardian signs a written consent for another agency.

4) If a judge signs an order requiring release to the court.
