Welcome to the State of California 

Patient Rights

The California Department of Public Health is committed to the delivery of quality health care in California.  “Patient Rights” is an integral part of this commitment and includes topics such as nurse-to-patient ratios required by state law; the right of nursing home residents to quality care; how to acquire copies of your personal health information maintained by the California Department of Public Health; and health information privacy addressed in California law (Information Practices Act) and Federal law (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act).
