I understand that information regarding Frederick Health Hospice patients, their families and/or significant others, and any persons receiving support or services in any capacity is privileged information for use by and with authorized persons only.
Iwill disclose such information only in the discharge of my assigned duties and responsibilities
with Hospice or persons authorized to receive such information through the signed consent of patient, family member, or affected party.
I will not disclose any information with anyone unauthorized to receive this information. I will handle any and all paperwork and forms with proper procedure of control so that no information is accidentally observed or released to any unauthorized persons. I also understand that the casual sharing of patient care information in public places or settings is inappropriate.
I further understand and agree that any violation of this policy is of such critical offense that it will justify my immediate discharge.
