The Right to Reject Treatment

Liv Hospital patients have the right to reject or stop treatment or surgery except in exceptional legal cases, as long as the consequences and risks of rejection are fully explained to the patient or his / her official representative or next of kin. In such a case, the patient will be asked to sign a form confirming their rejection.

Upon signing this form, the patient is normally discharged from the hospital.

The patient has the right to recommended treatment or surgery, even if he or she has previously rejected it: a previous rejection can in no circumstances be used as a reason not to provide that treatment in the event that the patient subsequently consents to it.
