Legal review: coping with celebrity patients.


These policies and procedures accomplish two objectives. The most important objective is the protection of patient confidentiality. A secondary objective is to establish the hospital's reputation as an institution that cares about its patients and a place where celebrity patients can feel their confidentiality is secure. Failure to meet these objectives may expose the hospital to liability for breach of its patients' confidentiality and will certainly erode the hospital's reputation in its community.
