  • You will receive information about continuing your health care at the end of your visit.
  • You have the right to know the policies that affect your care and treatment.
  • You have the right to change providers if other qualified providers are available.
  • You have the right to private and confidential treatments, communications and medical records permitted by law.
  • You have the right to access your medical records in a reasonable timeframe, to the extent permitted by law.
  • You have the right to be informed of charges for services and receive financial counseling on the availability of financial arrangements for health care.
  • You and your family have the right to have your compliments, concerns and grievances addressed. Sharing your concerns and complaints will not compromise your access to care, treatment, and services.

  • An Advance Directive is a set of instructions you give about the health care you want; in the event you lose the ability to make decisions for yourself. An Advance Directive includes a Living Will, a Health Care Power of Attorney, and a DNR (Do Not Resuscitate), which allows you to refuse CPR in the event your heart and breathing stop.
  • If you would like to have a copy of advanced directive information, a surgery center staff member will provide you with it.
  • If you have a Living Will or have an “agent” appointed to be your Health Care Power of Attorney, it is the policy of Waukesha Surgicenter to incorporate these documents into your patient record. It is our policy that if an adverse event occurs during your treatment, the medical team will initiate resuscitative or other stabilizing measures and transfer you to an acute care hospital for further evaluation. A copy of your Advance Directive and/or Health Care Power of Attorney will be sent with your medical records.
