The RHENA clinic has an automated and computerized system intended to process, strictly respecting medical confidentiality, certain administrative and medical information concerning you and collected during your stay.
Unless you object for legitimate reasons, this information will be saved on computers used exclusively for the management of administrative and medical data (in application of the Decree relating to the collection and processing of medical data referred to in Article L.710-6 of the Public Health Code), as well as mandatory traceability in the context of health monitoring.
In accordance with medical ethics and the provisions of the Data Protection Act, any patient may exercise his/her right of access and rectification through the physician responsible for medical information or through the practitioner who created the file.
State of health
All information regarding your state of health will be issued during an individual interview with your physician, except in emergencies or other situations, in which case the information will be provided to your next of kin.
You must take decisions regarding your health in conjunction with the physician, except in emergencies or other situations, in which case the information will be provided to your next of kin. Your consent is essential.
We will respect your wishes to not be informed of a diagnosis or prognosis, except when there is a risk of transmission to third parties.
If you do not wish your attendance at the Clinic to be disclosed, please inform a nurse at the clinic or at reception.
Protection of minors and adults under guardianship
Information concerning the health of minors and adults under guardianship and the care they must receive will be provided to their legal representatives.
Whenever possible, the physician in charge of a protected minor or adult patient will provide them with information in a manner appropriate to his/her maturity and discernment and will involve him/her in decisions affecting them.
Appointing a person of trust
In application of the law of 4 March 2002 on the rights of patients and the quality of the health system, during your stay you may appoint, in writing, a person of your choice in whom you have full confidence (a relative, a friend or your doctor) to assist you throughout your treatment and with the decisions to be made.
This person, whom the institution will consider to be your “person of trust", will be consulted in the event you are unable to express your wishes or understand the information provided to you. If you so wish, they may also attend medical interviews in order to participate in decisions concerning you. They may give an opinion but may not consent to treatment on your behalf. The medical team will remain in charge of that decision.
It is your responsibility to inform the trusted person you have chosen and to obtain his/her agreement. Said appointment will be valid for the duration of the period of hospitalisation. The said appointment is revocable at any time. The person of trust need not be the next of kin.

Consideration of the patient's wishes (L. 1111-4 CSP)
The Léonetti law of April 22, 2005 reinforced the principle that “each individual must take decisions regarding their health with the help of health professionals and taking into account the information and recommendations provided by them. Excluding unanticipated emergencies, doctors must respect the wishes of the person after informing them of the consequences of their choices... “
As such, you may choose to accept, refuse or interrupt life-sustaining treatment; the doctor must accept your request after a reasonable period of reflection.
Furthermore, you can ask to leave the health facility either temporarily or permanently. In this event, your doctor will inform you about the consequences and risks involved. If your decision remains unchanged, you must complete an "exit against medical advice" form confirming your wishes.
Any person of age may, if he/she so desires, make a written statement known as an "advance directive" in the event that they are unable to express their wishes at the end of their life. These directives will include all specific wishes regarding the conditions for reducing or stopping treatment.
They will be consulted prior to all medical decisions and their contents will prevail over all other non-medical opinions.
Your instructions must be renewed every three years and may be cancelled or modified at any time. If you want them to be taken into consideration, they must be given to the doctor in charge of your stay at the establishment: give them to him/her or indicate the person to whom you have given them (your person of trust for example).
