Patient Bill of Rights

One of the goals of HackensackUMC Palisades is to provide health care services in a manner that is patient-centered, responsive to physician expectations, accessible to all, and attentive to the patients' social and emotional needs as well as the patient's right for independence of expression, decision, action and personal dignity. In 1990, the State of New Jersey adopted a Patient Bill of Rights that HackensackUMC Palisades has been practicing ever since. HackensackUMC Palisades is dedicated to these principles!
