Helpful hints for the media

To protect patient privacy and confidentiality (see HIPAA guidelines below) and to accommodate requests for interviews and information about the hospital, its staff, employees and programs and services in a timely and accurate manner, Quincy Medical Center asks members of the media to follow these guidelines:

  • Out of respect to our patients' privacy, Quincy Medical Center does not provide details on a patients status including patient condition updates.
  • While on hospital property, all media representatives must be accompanied by a public realtions and marketing representative at all times.
  • Anyone entering the hospital with a recording device or camera (still or video) must be accompanied by a public relations and marketing representative.
  • All requests to record, videotape or film must be made in advance by calling public relations.
  • All patients who agree to be interviewed, photographed or videotaped on hospital property for any reason must provide written consent to the public affairs and marketing office. Only patients who give this consent may be interviewed, photographed, or videotaped.


HIPAA Guidelines for Releasing Information on the Condition of Patients

Quincy Medical Center has always placed the highest importance on patient privacy and confidentiality. The implementation of the Federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) in 2003 has not substantially changed our policies and procedures in releasing patient information, but does ensure that all health care institutions follow the same guidelines to safeguard privacy and confidentiality.

In general, out of respect for our patients' privacy, Quincy Medical Center does not provide details about patient status including condition updates.
