FCFC Confidentiality Statement

The FCFC Confidentiality Statement applies to all FCFC Healthcare “workforce members” including:  employees, medical staff and other health care professionals; volunteers; agency, temporary and registry personnel; and trainees/student.  Specifically it states:

“The Free Clinic of Franklin County’s policy on confidentiality means that those listed above may not disclose any medical information revealed by a patient or discovered in connection with the treatment of a patient.  The purpose of our confidentiality policy is to allow the patient to feel free to make a full and frank disclosure of information to our staff with the knowledge that staff  will protect the confidential nature of the information disclosed. Full disclosure enables FCFC staff to diagnose conditions properly and to treat the patient appropriately. In return for the patient's honesty, FCFC staff will not reveal confidential communications or information without the patient's express written consent unless required to disclose the information by law.”
