Patient Rights and Responsibilities

patient rights and responsibilities

Family Health Centers of San Diego (FHCSD) is an accredited Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) by the Joint Commission and the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA), organizations dedicated to enhancing health care quality and safety.

At a PCMH, patients receive quality care through a direct and long-term relationship with their chosen provider and health care team. This team is respectful of and responsive to individual patient preferences, needs and values, ensuring all clinical decisions are guided by these principles. Patients, and their families, also receive support to become engaged in healthy behaviors.

Everyone at FHCSD — from clinicians to receptionists — plays a role in creating a PCMH that supports whole-person care and improves access, self-care and care coordination within and outside FHCSD.

Part of our duty as a PCMH facility is to inform patients of their rights and responsibilities. We encourage patients to view and download our Patient Rights and Responsibilities handout, available in English and Spanish, as well as our Notice of Privacy Practices handout, also available in English and Spanish.
