Patients Rights and Responsibilities
As a patient at Crete Area Medical Center (CAMC), we consider you a partner in your hospital care.
View your rights and responsibilities as a patient.
Individuals usually make decision regarding their health care treatment after their physician recommends a course of treatment and provides information about the treatment. These decisions may become more difficult if a patient becomes unable to tell their doctors and loved ones what kind of health care treatment they want. Through documents, known as Advance Directives, individuals can express their treatment preference before they actually need such care, ensuring their wishes will be carried out and that their families and others will not be faced with making difficult decisions.
Upon your arrival at Crete Area Medical Center, you will be asked if you have Advance Directives and given written information about them. Please do not hesitate to contact the admitting office, social services or your physician for more information.
