Your Privacy Rights

Patients or their parents/legal guardians have certain rights under HIPAA, including the right to:

A detailed explanation of each of these rights is contained in our Notice of Privacy Practices along with instructions on how you can exercise these rights at Children's Hospital.

In most situations involving patients who are children, the child's parent or legal guardian is the one who may carry out these rights on behalf of their child. In situations where a child may consent to his/her own care without parental consent (i.e., testing and treatment for sexually transmitted diseases), the patient is the one who has these rights.
