This handbook will give you a brief outline of your rights and duties as a patient. It is hoped that, with this information, you will better understand the need for cooperation between you and your doctor or hospital. You have certain rights that must be respected, but the health care providers also have rights, and it is only through a mutual understanding of both of your needs that you can receive optimal health care.
