Your Rights as a Patient
As a patient in New York State you have certain rights that are guaranteed by law. These rights are mandated at the state level and are assured to anyone being treated or in need of treatment at a hospital, clinic, outpatient facility or other health care setting. Burke Rehabilitation Hospital wants to ensure that you know these rights. For this reason we have provided you with the New York State Patient Bill of Rights on our website.
