Tours - Patient Care Areas
To address privacy in patient care areas and ensure compliance with federal law, please observe the following procedures:
- Tours that will include patient care areas should be scheduled in advance with the facility manager(s) or appropriate administrator, with notice sufficient to allow time for patients in those areas to be informed of the tour.
- Patients in these areas who do not want to be present when the group comes through the area must be given the opportunity to be moved to a private space, have a privacy curtain drawn, or have other measures taken to protect their privacy.
- All tours of the facility should be led by a University employee; members of the tour group may not leave the group in patient areas.
