Patient Rights & Responsibilities

As a patient, you have certain patient rights and responsibilities under federal and Connecticut state law. In this section, we have outlined these rights and responsibilities. Middlesex Hospital recognizes that certain patient groups, due to age, language or cultural barriers, hearing impairment or mental disability, require assistance in understanding and exercising their rights. Middlesex Hospital is committed to interpreting patient rights for these individuals in a manner sensitive to the needs of the patient.
