Patient privacy and dignity
We are committed to the delivery of high quality services, affording our patients the same privacy, dignity, respect and compassion that we would want for ourselves our family and friends.
Privacy and dignity
- We recognise each person as an individual and understand that spending time in hospital can be stressful; our intention is not to add to that stress.
- We aim to respect your wishes in any way that we can and assist you in maintaining your own level of independence in all aspects of your care.
- We recognise that respecting privacy, dignity and autonomy is not an addition to care provision, but an integral part of good care.
- As an organisation we are committed to eliminating mixed sex accommodation in inpatient areas, with separate sleeping, washing and toilet facilities for men and women.
