Federal Privacy Law Media Guidelines:

The following standards apply to ALL media inquiries per federal privacy laws (Healthcare Insurance Portability and Accountability Act):

  • Media inquiries must contain the specific, accurate patient name.
  • As long as the patient has not requested that information be withheld, we may release the patient's one-word condition without obtaining prior written patient authorization. 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.

Patient Conditions:

  • Undetermined - Patient awaiting physician assessment
  • Good - Patient's vital signs are stable and within normal limits; patient is comfortable; indicators are excellent.
  • Fair - Patient's vital signs are stable, but he/she is uncomfortable or may have minor complications; indicators are favorable.
  • Serious - Patient is acutely ill and vital signs may be unstable, but there is a chance for improvement; indicators are questionable.
  • Critical - Vital signs are unstable and not within normal limits; there may be major complications and indicators are unfavorable.
