PATIENT RIGHTS & RESPONSIBILITIES
We want to encourage you, as a patient at Essentia Health, to speak openly with your health care team, take part in your treatment choices, and promote your own safety by being well informed and involved in your care. Because we want you to think of yourself as a partner in your care, we want you to know your rights as well as your responsibilities during your stay at our facilities. We invite you and your family to join us as active members of your care team.
Essentia Health is committed to providing safe, quality, compassionate health care. In accordance with this commitment, we believe that patients are entitled to the following rights and have been given a copy:
Care decisions / informed consent
Patients have the right to be informed about and to participate in decision making related to their care.
Patients have the right to obtain from their physician complete, current information concerning diagnosis, treatment and prognosis in terms patients can be reasonably expected to understand. When it is not medically advisable to give such information to patients, the information should be made available to an appropriate person on their behalf. Families are encouraged to participate in decisions regarding care when such participation is appropriate.
Patients have the right to receive from their physician information necessary to give informed consent prior to the start of any procedure and/or treatment. Where medically significant alternatives for care or treatment exist, or when patients request information concerning medical alternatives, patients have the right to such information. Patients also have the right to know the name of the person responsible for the procedures and/or treatment.
Except in emergencies, patients may not be transferred to another facility without being given a full explanation for the transfer, without provision being made for continuing care, and without acceptance by the receiving institution.
Patients will not be denied appropriate care because of age, race, ethnicity, religion, culture, language, physical or mental disability, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, socioeconomic status or source of payment.
Privacy, respectful care and security
Patients have the right to considerate and respectful care, including privacy, security, safety and freedom from all forms of abuse, neglect, exploitation and harassment
All patients have the right to consideration of privacy during their medical care. Case discussion, consultation, examination and treatment are confidential and should be conducted discreetly. Paper and electronic medical records and other patient documents will be used in a manner which will preserve the identity of the individual patient from display to persons not authorized to have such information.
Patients have the right to know the identity and professional status of all staff members and physicians providing services. Patients have the right to be treated in an environment that provides for their security and safety.
Advance directives / ethical issues
Advance Directives for medical care such as Health Care Directives, Living Wills or the designation of a surrogate decision maker or agent are respected to the extent provided by law. These documents state your wishes about treatment or name someone to decide for you if you are unable to do so. Patients may receive information about advance directives if they make such a request.
Ethical questions that may arise concerning various treatment options may be first explored with the physician involved with the case and, if necessary, may be taken to the Bioethics Committee. This may be done by staff, providers, patients or their families by speaking to the appropriate manager.
If you have a complaint or grievance regarding an Advance Directive, follow the Grievance Procedure included in this booklet.
Refusal of treatment
Patients have the right to refuse treatment to the extent permitted by law and to be informed of the medical consequences of this action. Patients have the right to refuse to participate in research investigation or clinical trials without limitation.
Cultural and religious practices
Essentia Health respects and accommodates the cultural and religious practices or ceremonies of patients and their families unless such practices would be in direct conflict with the ethics or values of Essentia Health.
Confidential records and information
Patients have the right to expect that all communication and records pertaining to their care be treated confidentially and that requests for access to their records will be met within a reasonable period of time. You may review your medical records, request amendment to, and obtain information on disclosure of your health information, in accordance with law and regulation.
Pain can be a common part of the patient experience. Patients have the right to appropriate assessment and management of pain. Patients’ right to pain management is respected and supported.
Special communication needs: hearing, sight and language
Patients have the right to communication that they can understand. If patients are hearing impaired, Essentia Health will provide, at no cost, a qualified language interpreter and/or auxiliary aids to offer patients effective access to our health care services. Patients should inform staff when the appointment is made if they wish an interpreter, auxiliary aid or telecommunications device for the deaf (TDD).
If patients are sight impaired, appropriate services, information and auxiliary aids will be provided. Patients should notify the registration staff when the appointment is made.
If patients of family members speak a language other than English, Essentia Health is willing to make every attempt to locate an interpreter. Patients may request an interpreter through registration or clinical staff.
Patients have a right to receive a statement of their account if a payment is due from them. Patients with questions about their bill are encouraged to call Business Services – Patient Accounts.
The Affordable Care Act, signed into law March 2010, puts American consumers in charge of their health coverage and care by:
- Stopping insurance companies from limiting the care you need – which will help children (and eventually all Americans) with pre-existing conditions gain coverage and keep it,
- Removing insurance company barriers between you and your doctor – which will protect all Americans’ choice of doctors and end lifetime limits on the care you may receive.
For questions about your benefits and/or how these protections may apply to your health insurance plan contact your Plan Administrator.
To learn more about the new benefits and cost savings available to you under the Affordable Care Act, please visit www.HealthCare.gov. This website will help you make informed decisions about health care coverage by offering easy-to-understand information about what health plans are available in your state; how much they cost; what they cover, and lots more information tailored to your specific needs.
Patients may designate persons who are permitted to visit during their stay at an Essentia Health facility including, but not limited to, a spouse, a domestic partner (including a same-sex domestic partner), another family member, or a friend. Essentia Health will not deny visitation on the basis of age, ethnicity, religion, culture, language, physical or mental disability, socioeconomic status, sex, sexual orientation, and gender identity or expression.
Patients also have the right to withdraw or deny such consent at any time.
Relationship with other health services
Patients or their designated representative have the right to receive information upon request about Essentia Health’s relationship with outside providers to which patients may be referred.
Patients have the right to voice their concerns about the care they receive. If you have a problem or complaint, talk to your physician, nurse, or department leader. You may also contact the Patient Relations Department or Patient Advocate.
Please express your concerns about patient care, safety, services, or medical treatment personally, by telephone or in writing to the facility where you received care, or:

+ Medical Directives
Most people do not want to think about death and dying -- so they don't. Until they have to.
Unfortunately, that often means that families are left struggling with difficult decisions about important matters, such as whether or not Mom would like to be kept alive using a ventilator, or who should be in charge of managing Dad's financial affairs, because Mom or Dad never made clear what they wanted for themselves.
Advance directives are important tools for anyone to have, because even the healthiest person could experience a sudden accident and not be able to speak for herself. But when you have a life-threatening illness, it's particularly critical to make clear, in writing, what your wishes are should the time come when you can't express them yourself.
There are two primary kinds of advance directives:
- A living will spells out your preferences about certain kinds of life-sustaining treatments. For example, you can indicate whether you do or do not want interventions such as cardiac resuscitation, tube feeding, and mechanical respiration.
- A power of attorney directive names someone that you trust to act as your agent if you are unable to speak for yourself. If you want to choose one person to speak for you on health care matters, and someone else to make financial decisions, you can do separate financial and health care powers of attorney.
A power of attorney may be more flexible, since it's impossible to predict all the medical decisions that might come up in the future and spell out your exact preferences for all of these situations. Many states actually combine the living will and power of attorney into one "advance directive" form.
You should only assign someone power of attorney to make your medical decisions if you have someone you trust to carry out your wishes. For example, your husband or daughter might find it painful to comply with your preference not to have a breathing tube inserted.
Thinking About a Living Will
When you do choose a medical power of attorney, you will probably want to put some specific things in writing as to the kind of care you would want should you not be able to express your wishes directly. Some things to think about:
- Do you want all pain relief options available, even if they may have the side effect of unintentionally hastening your death?
- Which life-sustaining options -- such as tube feeding, mechanical ventilation, CPR, and antibiotics -- do you want, and which would you not want? How long would you want these options to be continued if your condition is not improving?
- Would you want artificial life support removed if you are found to be irreversibly brain dead, or do you prefer that your life be sustained until your heart stops on its own?
- What are your feelings about organ donation?
- How do you want your body to be disposed of after death? (Burial, cremation, medical research?) Which funeral home or other organization do you want to handle the arrangements?
Each state has its own form for advance directives, giving you questions to answer and specific things that you can choose to accept or reject, but you can always add additional information about your wishes if the form does not include everything you're concerned about.
Choosing a Medical Power of Attorney
If you decide to choose a medical power of attorney, here are some things to look for:
- Someone who is not intimidated by medical professionals and is willing to ask challenging questions
- Someone who can put aside their own feelings about a particular procedure or medical option in order to ensure that your wishes are carried out
- Someone who understands your wishes about medical options and end-of-life care
- You might also want to think about an alternate power of attorney if your first choice is unable to carry out the job.
Once you choose a medical power of attorney, continue talking with him or her on an ongoing basis about possible situations that might occur, and how you would want them handled. Although you cannot anticipate every possibility, the more you talk with this person about your wishes in general, the better they will understand your overall desires about care at the end of your life.
Here are some possibilities you may want to discuss:
- How do you feel about being fed or hydrated through a tube?
- Would you want to receive certain treatments, like antibiotics, tube feeding, or mechanical ventilation, for a trial period and have them stopped if a certain time passed with no improvement?
- How aggressive do you want your doctors to be about the use of CPR should your heart stop?
- What are you most afraid of regarding treatments you might receive?
- What are you afraid might happen if you can't make decisions for yourself?
- Are there circumstances under which you would want more aggressive measures taken to sustain your life, and others under which you wouldn't?
Making It Legal
Whether you write a living will, choose a medical power of attorney, or both, you will need to make those decisions legally binding, in writing. There are state-specific forms for advance directives like these; you do not need an attorney to prepare them.
You can download the forms you need from http://www.caringinfo.org. Their main page links directly to a menu for downloading each state's advance directive forms. Each state's form is different, so be sure to use the correct form for your state. You will generally need to have your form witnessed and/or notarized, so take careful note of the requirements for your state.
Once you have completed your advance directive, you should ensure that everyone involved in your care has a copy and is aware of it: your doctor, your hospital, your hospice or palliative care team, important family members, and your attorney if you have one.
+ Community Care (Charity Care)
Essentia Health Community Care
Helping you pay your medical bills
At Essentia Health, we understand the importance of receiving healthcare when you need it, regardless of your financial situation. If you have concerns about paying your medical bills, our representatives can help. It’s our way of being here with you.
Essentia Health is dedicated to making a healthy difference in people’s lives. In fulfilling our mission, we offer Community Care – a program for people whose insurance coverage and/or ability to pay their medical bills is limited.
Community Care provides discounts on bills for medically necessary care. The program covers current bills and can remain in effect for 90 days after you are approved.
You may qualify for Community Care if:
- You are uninsured
- You are not eligible for government programs
- Your insurance does not provide full coverage for all medically necessary care
- You have substantial out-of-pocket expenses and are unable to manage your medical bill
Community Care is not an insurance program and does not cover:
- Retail services from pharmacies, optical shops, medical equipment stores, etc.
- Services supplied by organizations that are not part of Essentia Health
- Certain medical services, please contact our office for a list of services not covered
How we can help
A representative is available at most Essentia Health clinics and hospitals. They are available to answer your questions and help resolve issues with your medical bills.
A representative can estimate what your insurance will cover and explain what you will be responsible to pay. They can also identify state and federal programs that you may be eligible for and assist you in filling out the necessary paperwork.
Your medical bill
It is important to let us know if you are having problems paying your medical bills. If your bills go unpaid, they are eventually turned over to a collection agency. However, if you keep us informed, we can work together to determine what programs you may be eligible for, including Community Care, and/or arrange a manageable interest-free payment plan and long-term financing.
