Notice of Facility Privacy Practices

This notice is required by federal law and describes how medical information about you may be used and disclosed, and how you can get access to this information. Please review it carefully.

One of our highest priorities is protecting the privacy and confidentiality of your personal health information, as required by law. As a normal part of your care and treatment, your personal health information is used and shared on a need to know basis for the following reasons:

  • The coordination and planning of your health care with the many professionals involved in your care
  • Referrals to another provider, such as a specialist, therapist, or hospital
  • Determining coverage and obtaining payment from health plans, such as private insurance or Medicare or Medicaid
  • Assessing our practices, improving our care and conducting training programs for the staff involved in your care
  • Operational activities designed to maintain the required accreditation, certification, licensing and credentialing
  • To help our accountants, auditors, lawyers and other consultants maintain and improve our overall operations and delivery of care
  • Requests from or referrals to public health authorities, government oversight agencies, law enforcement agencies, the courts, coroners, or a funeral home, to the extent required by law.
  • Notification and communication with your family members or your personal representative, unless you object

By using this website, you are acknowledging that you understand and consent to the above uses of your personal information as a normal part of your care and treatment. If there is a specific area you object to, there is a space to record those objections and we will make reasonable attempts to accommodate, to the extent the law allows us.

We will NOT release or disclose your personal health information for any other uses without your specific written authorization, which you may revoke at any time. Among the circumstances where your information will NOT be released without your knowledge and specific written authorization are:

  • Research information unrelated to treatment
  • Psychotherapy notes containing private conversations
  • Disclosure of your information to other companies for the purpose of marketing products or services to you
  • Fundraising purposes

Your Health Information Rights

  • Although your health record is the physical property of the nursing facility, the information in your health record belongs to you.
  • You may request restrictions on certain uses and disclosures of your health information. We will attempt to accommodate if we can; however, when it relates to your treatment or billing for care provided, we are not required to agree to the restriction.
  • You may request to inspect your health records and obtain copies for a reasonable copying fee. If you request your records be sent somewhere else, we cannot ensure their privacy if we do not have a privacy agreement with that agency. You may also request written copies of electronic transmissions.
  • You may request in writing that we correct a medical record if you feel the record is incorrect or information is missing.
  • You may request a listing of the times we disclosed your health information to outside parties with your authorization.
  • You may revoke in writing any prior written authorizations you made to disclose health information.

If you have any questions or concerns about your privacy rights or feel your privacy rights have been violated, ask to speak with the facility’s privacy officer. Contacting the privacy officer will in no way diminish the quality of care or services you receive at our facility. You may also file a complaint with the Secretary of the federal Department of Health and Human Services.

The administrator of your facility is your privacy officer.

If any terms of this notice change, we will provide a revised notice to all residents. In compliance with federal law, this notice is in effect as of January 1, 2003.
