Patient Rights and Responsibilities

At Hartford HealthCare, our patients and team members are expected to maintain a safe environment and be treated with courtesy, dignity and respect.

This place of caregiving will be free of threats, violence, disrespectful communication, abuse or harassment of other patients or members of the Hartford HealthCare community. Hartford HealthCare does not tolerate discrimination against any person, including patients and team members, on the basis of race, color, national origin, ethnicity, culture, disability, age, sex, religion, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, or any other characteristic protected by law.

In order to provide the best possible service to our patients, a Patient Advocate is available to assist you. Should you or family have questions about the hospital, comments about your care, suggestions on improving our services or a need for someone to listen, please contact a Patient Advocate (see below).
