Corporate Compliance

Midland Memorial Hospital is committed to providing health care services consistent with the very highest standards of ethics and integrity.

Each employee, volunteer, student, business associate, and physician has a personal obligation to uphold our standards and Code of Business Ethics. Complying with federal and state regulations are essential and demonstrate excellent business and health care practice.

The privacy and protection of our patients’ confidential medical information demonstrates to our patients and the community our commitment to their most basic rights and fosters a sense of trust. Without trust, we cannot deliver the excellent patient-centered care to which we are dedicated.

What is HIPAA?
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) was created to ensure patients’ healthcare information remains confidential. This law tells us how, when, and to whom we can share patients’ healthcare information.

The HIPAA privacy regulations were effective April 14, 2003. By this law, patients have the rights to:

Request access to their protected health information
Request an amendment or correction to their protected health information
Request the restriction or limit the use of their protected health information
Refuse to be contacted for fund-raising activities
Request to keep their name off of the patient directory

Protecting Protected Health Information
Everyone at Midland Memorial Hospital are personally responsible for respecting and protecting the privacy rights of our patients. This means not sharing patient information with anyone who should not have access to that information.

Only those involved in the care and treatment of a patient are allowed access to that patient’s medical record. These individuals include physicians, nurses, therapists, lab personnel, admitting staff or anyone the patient authorizes as their personal representative.
