28 Pa. Code § 553.11. Purpose.


§ 553.11. Purpose.

 The purpose of § §  553.11—553.13 (relating to patient’s bill of rights) is to promote the interests and well-being of the patients of ambulatory surgical facilities subject to this subpart even in those instances where the interests of the patients may be in opposition to the interests of the ASF. It is the policy of the Department that the interests of patients be protected by a patient’s bill of rights. Nothing in § §  553.11—553.13 is intended to serve as evidence of a standard of reasonable conduct for the purpose of determining civil liability between providers and consumers of health services. The ASF has the right to expect the patient to fulfill patient responsibilities as may be stated in the ASF’s rules affecting patient care and conduct.
