Ethics and Patient Rights
During your child’s treatment, parents and doctors may have difficult decisions to make. Our ethics committee can provide guidance for those facing complex choices, such as choosing among treatment options or continuing life-sustaining treatment. This free service is available to help your family come to your own decisions—it provides confidential support and ensures that you have a clear understanding of the situation and the options available. For more information, call 444-6175.
Patient Rights and Responsibilities
We provide copies of parents' and patients' rights and responsibilities. If you would like a copy or if you need more information, please ask your nurse or contact one of our clinical social workers at 401-444-5711.
