WMC requires informed consent to undertake any type of procedures and treatments for the patient or patient’s next of kin or guardian except in case of a medical emergency. WMC understands that the patient coming to the medical center and registering to be seen by a doctor, s/he has consented to be treated at the medical center. Each patient shall have the following patient rights among others:
Following the registration of the patient, s/he will be directed to the nursing triage for vital signs assessment and also to see if the reason for the visit is particularly relevant to the physician. The patient will then go to the physician’s room to give full medical history and undertake a physical examination. This process takes 20-30 minutes per patient giving the patient enough time to present complaints and the physician the required time to make the proper assessment. Washington Healthcare Center strongly believes in offering about half an hour per patient for effective physical examination and history taking. With the impression the physician will have from the initial physical exam and medical history, the physician will then determine if additional investigation such as laboratory, radiology, or other tests is required. The patient shall receive treatment in a form of doctor advice, medication, surgery, health education, and other therapy. Whenever needed, the patient may also be referred to another doctor with a relevant specialty for better care and management.
A patient who requires follow-up will be given advice and an appointment as to when to return to his/her doctor. If required, the physician and/or the nursing staff would make a follow-up phone call to the patient to assess progress and answer any questions the patient may have.
