Rights and responsibilities in treatment
The month of March has been designated as Human Rights Month!
We will focus on patients' rights and responsibilities throughout the month of March, as well as raising awareness about what happens inside a treatment facility.
Common fears discourage people from seeking treatment. We want to alleviate your fears, because treatment is well worth it!
RIGHT - Each patient has the right to have their freedom of religion, belief and opinion respected by health care workers. This includes indigenous belief systems, religious dress and rules in relation to modesty.
RESPONSIBILITY - Each patient has the responsibility to respect the religion, belief and opinion of health care workers and others and not to force other persons to act according to a certain set of beliefs.
