Did you know you and your family have rights as a patient? These rights are taken straight from the hospital websites. We need to know our rights when we or our loved ones are hospitalized. You can go to the actual website and search for Patient Rights.
This is public information. If you don't live in Tennessee, your state should have the same type of information available.
You also have the right to designate a Patient Medical Advocate with healthcare instructions. Do this before you have to go to the hospital. This form is from a medical advocate in Nashville TN.
