Patient Rights and Responsibilities

Sentara is dedicated to providing you with the best in healthcare, both in terms of treatment and patient experience. We respect your rights as a patient and want you to understand your responsibility as a partner in your care.

As a patient in a Sentara hospital, you have certain rights and protections guaranteed by state and federal laws. These exist to help ensure the quality and safety of your hospital care. A copy of "Let’s TALK about Patient's Rights and Responsibilities" will be provided to you upon your admission to the hospital.
