Patient Rights

At Sierra Nevada Nephrology Consultants, we base our practice upon seven main values:

Mutual Respect






Open Communication

In everything we do, we put these values into action. Our value of mutual respect means that both our staff members and our patients have certain rights and responsibilities to each other, including the following:

The patient has the right to considerate and respectful care.

The patient has the right to and is encouraged to obtain from physicians and other direct caregivers relevant, current, and understandable information concerning diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis. Patients have the right to know the identity of the people involved in their care. The patient also has the right to know the immediate and long-term costs of treatment choices, insofar as they are known.

The patient has the right to make decisions about their care and to refuse a recommended treatment or plan of care to the extent permitted by law, and to be informed of the medical consequences of this action.

The patient has the right to every consideration of privacy. Case discussion, consultation, examination, and treatment should be conducted so as to protect each patient's privacy.

The patient has the right to expect that all communications and records pertaining to his/her care will be treated as confidential, except in cases such as suspected abuse and public health hazards when reporting is permitted or required by law.
