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:
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.
