Patient Rights

At Salinas Valley Health we support your right to know about your health and illness, and your right to participate in decisions that affect your care and well-being. Our own statement of patients' rights, incorporating state and federal law, describes our commitment to protecting your rights. We believe that patients who understand their rights and understand the environment in which they are being treated are better able to participate in their care and contribute to their recovery. Your recovery will require a team effort and we need for you and or your representative to be an active member of the team.

Patients also have obligations and responsibilities to the staff, physicians and to other patients.

Medical Aid in Dying

Our organization does not support medical aid in dying and staff are not allowed to participate. We do not provide specific referrals to participating clinicians or organizations.
