Patient Rights and Privacy

We strive to preserve your rights as an individual. We also ask that you and your visitors be considerate of the rights of others.

Bill of rights

The Patients' Bill of Rights was first enacted into law as part of the Older Americans' Act of 1965. Following, NH codified its NH Patient's Bill of Rights in RSA 151:21. It applies to all individuals in hospitals, residential care facilities, nursing homes, and all other healthcare locations licensed under the provisions of RSA 151:21.

If you have questions about your rights as a patient, or if you would like a copy of the state statute that lists your rights, please contact patient relations at 603-354-6577.

Learn about your rights and responsibilities as a patient at Cheshire Medical Center and Dartmouth Health.
