To the extent the hospital and media recognize responsibilities, we see our relationship with the media as one based on mutual respect and understanding of each entity's constraints and needs.
Both institutions are important to the community. Therefore, our policy calls for cooperation with the media within the reasonable framework of acceptable conduct.
Information about patients, except as required by law, must not be given without the consent of the patient or the patient's immediate family and the patient's physician.
To learn more about how medical information may be used and disclosed, read the HIPAA notice of privacy practices.
If you are a member of the media, call 706-475-3336 for information concerning patient condition reports.
