The most effective health care involves a cooperative relationship in which patients are seen as integral partners with the healthcare team. For this relationship to work, patients should understand that they have both rights and responsibilities. The following is an outline of these rights and responsibilities, intended to help our patients become more effective health care consumers, both here at Student Health Services (SHS) and in the general healthcare community.
If you believe that your patient rights have been violated in any way at SHS, we encourage you to exercise your responsibility to inform someone who can do something about it! Please contact the Patient Health Navigator (541-737-1999) or SHS Administrative Assistants (541-737-3106) if you have any concerns about your service and/ or treatment.
Both offices are located on the third floor of Plageman Student Health Center.
We hope that you will ask any question you have—whether it is about the content of this document, your healthcare concerns, or Student Health Services—with the confidence that you will receive a satisfactory response. We look forward to helping you become an empowered health care consumer.
