Protection of Health Information
This facility is dedicated to the protection of your personal health information. We follow the guidelines set forth by the U.S. Depart of Health & Human Services, Office of Civil Rights. You can visit their website for more information:www.hhs.gov/ocr/hipaa/.
Independent Contractor Notice
The physicians and other specialized medical service providers using this facility, including anesthesia, radiology or pathology, are independent contractors and are not employees or agents of the facility. Since they are independent contractors, the facility is not responsible or liable for their acts or omissions.
There are several types of advance directives; the two most common forms are living wills and a durable power of attorney designation. Methodist Southlake Hospital does not honor previously signed advance directives. All patients are therefore asked to sign a written consent at registration that allows the hospital to initiate resuscitation efforts and a transfer to a higher level of care should they suffer a cardiac or respiratory arrest or other life-threatening situation.
Notice of Visitation Rights
Methodist Southlake Hospital encourages and facilitates visitation in a manner that promotes healing, balances the needs of all patients and visitors, and creates a safe and secure environment. In fulfilling this purpose, Methodist Southlake Hospital recognizes the right of all patients to choose who may visit them during an outpatient recuperation or overnight hospitalization. Visitors of choice may include spouses, domestic partners (including same-sex domestic partners), family members, friends or other individuals regardless of formal relationship status, race, color, national origin, religion, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, or disability. There are times when clinically necessary or reasonable restrictions on visitation may be required.
