8. Privacy

"Every resident has the right to be afforded privacy in treatment and in caring for his or her personal needs."

In other words...

You have the right to privacy.

You should feel that you are being treated with respect when you are given medical care. For example, when your doctor is examining you, the door to your room or curtain around your bed should be closed.

You should also have privacy when your personal needs are being looked after. For example, when you are being dressed or bathed, the door or privacy curtain should be closed. When you use the washroom, the door should be closed if that is what you prefer.
