Patient Rights and Privacy

Taking Patient Respect Seriously

For Scripps physicians and staff, respecting patients means involving them in care decisions, and protecting their right to privacy.

When you’re a patient at Scripps, our goal is to involve you in as much of your treatment and recovery as possible, and we encourage you to take an active role in your health care. This makes the healing process a more positive one for patients and families.
