Patient Rights Training

Every patient who enters a healthcare facility deserves to be treated with dignity and respect and be empowered to make personal decisions about their healthcare choices. These two tenets are at the core of the patient bill of rights. A list of guarantees first developed in 1973 and then revised in 1992, by the American Hospital Association. Healthcare providers and healthcare workers have a responsibility to provide care to patients in need.  This patient rights training course informs healthcare workers on the rights patients are guaranteed so they are able to identify and protect against any violation of those rights.  Just as important as the physical care is making sure providers and workers abide by and protect the rights, guaranteed by law, patients have.
