Patient Charter of Rights and Responsibilities
As a patient of ours, you have a very precious right to health care, thanks to a team entirely devoted to you. But did you know that you also have other rights? And that you have responsibilities too? In our hospital, respecting these rights is vital to our mission. That is why it’s important to present our Charter of Patients’ Rights and Responsibilities / Charte des droits et responsabilités des patients.
This document exists to clearly inform every patient who walks through our doors about their rights and responsibilities. Without being a legally binding document, this charter has been created as an opportunity to build trust between patients and the medical system, always with our core mission in mind: to provide the best possible comprehensive care to our patients while promoting human dignity, self-esteem and self-determination.
We have also created a short video in both official languages, English and French, as well as in sign language and four Indigenous languages: Michif, Swampy Cree, Ojibwe and Oji Cree.
