Charter of Patient Rights and Responsibilities
Under our management philosophy of practicing patient-centered medical care, patients have the right to receive medical care that is provided with respect for human dignity. Good medical care requires collaboration between medical care providers and patients based on relationships of trust, for which spontaneous participation by patients is essential.
With the aim of embodying such belief, Ohkubo Hospital has established the Charter of Patient Rights and Responsibilities. By observing the Charter, we aim to facilitate patients’ spontaneous participation in medical care.
Patients have the following rights and responsibilities.
- Patients have equal rights to receive appropriate medical care.
- Patients have the right to receive medical care that is respectful of their individual characteristics and values, and based on mutually cooperative relationships with medical care providers.
- Patients have the right to receive explanations on their medical condition, clinical course, tests, and treatment in comprehensible language.
- Patients have the right to select the medical care they wish to receive based on adequate explanation and information. Their wish to seek a second opinion shall also be respected.
- Patients have the right to request access to their own medical records.
- Personal information provided by patients for the purpose of receiving medical care shall be kept confidential, and patients’ privacy shall be respected and shall not be violated during their hospital stay.
- With regard to new medical treatment still under development, patients have the right to determine whether or not to undergo such treatment after being adequately informed of the objectives and risks, and to refuse such treatment at any stage without being disadvantaged in any way.
- Patients have the right to be referred to an appropriate medical institution as necessary in order to receive ongoing medical care.
