The patient has the option to expressly state that he or she does not want information released, including confirmation of his or her presence in the facility.
  • Any medical information beyond the one-word condition requires written authorization by the patient or patient's legal representative. Note: public agencies (police, fire/rescue) are not bound to the same standards.
  • Videotaped or recorded interviews, photographs, or any direct interaction with a patient requires written patient authorization.
