Patient Rights and Responsibilities
At Upham’s Corner Health Center (UCHC) we support your right to know about your health and any illness, and your right to participate in decisions that affect your well-being.
In Massachusetts, there is a law designed to help protect the rights of patients in health care facilities: Massachusetts General Law, Chapter 111, Section 70E.
The patient rights in the Massachusetts law are included in the Patient Rights and Responsibilities policy. Along with rights, come responsibilities. Patient responsibilities are also included.
If you have any questions about these Rights and Responsibilities or would like a complete set of the Patient Rights as they appear, word-for-word in the Massachusetts General Law, please call the Patient & Community Relations Manager, 617-740-8107.
