Patient Responsibilities

To the extent possible, Ohio Skin Care Institute requests that patients:

  • Provide accurate and complete information about your past illnesses, hospitalizations, medications and other matters relating to their health, and to answer any questions concerning these matters.
  • Participate in their health care planning by talking openly and honestly about your concerns with your physician and other health care professionals.
  • Understand their health problems and treatment to their own satisfaction and to ask questions if they do not understand.
  • Cooperate with their physician and other health care professionals in carrying out their health care plan both as an inpatient and after discharge.
  • Participate and cooperate with our health care professionals in creating a discharge plan, which meets their medical and social needs.
  • Inform the practice or any of its professionals of the existence of any advance directive (including health care proxy, power of attorney, DNR, living will) they may have created.
  • Provide information relating to insurance and other sources of payment.
  • Cooperate and abide by the rules, regulations and policies of the hospital.

We also ask that you be considerate of your fellow patients, respecting their need for privacy and a quiet environment, as we expect them to do for you as well.
