Patient Rights, HIPAA, Advance Directives

Patient rights at Poudre Valley Health System

You enjoy many rights as a hospital patient. For details, check the Patient Rights brochure you received at your preadmission appointment or admission.

Privacy (HIPAA) and your information

At your request we keep information about your hospital stay private and confidential, as required by federal law (the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, or HIPAA).

One way we maintain your privacy is to set up a special password at your request. You tell us this password, which you may share with friends and family so they can find out how you're doing. When callers give us your password, we can update them on your progress. If callers don't know the password, we cannot tell them anything about your condition.

We'll write your password on a note card for you to keep.

Advance directives

We can help you complete a Living Will or other advance directive at your preadmission appointment. These legal documents spell out the care you want -- or don't want -- in case you cannot make your own decisions and communicate them to us.

If you decide to complete an advance directive while you're in the hospital, just ask your nurse to make arrangements.
