Patient Privacy

At UH Bedford Medical Center, a Campus of UH Regional Hospitals all patient information is confidential. We carefully follow the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), which requires hospitals to:

  • Ensure the confidentiality, integrity and availability of all electronic protected health information (EPHI) the covered entity creates, receives, maintains or transmits;
  • Protect against any reasonably anticipated threats or hazards to the security or integrity of such information;
  • Protect against any reasonably anticipated uses or disclosures of such information that are not permitted or required by the Privacy Rule; and
  • Ensure compliance by its workforce.

For HIPAA information, speak with your nurse, or call the Patient Care Advocate office at 440-735-3578.
