I. User committee
In application of the law of March 4, 2022 regarding patient rights and health system quality and the decree of June 1er2016 regarding User Committees at health care facilities, the Ambroise Paré, Pierre Cherest, and Hartmann clinics established a User Committee (UC) that is shared among the three facilities.
The patient representatives comprising the UC:
Association for human organ and tissue donation
Tél : 06 14 98 81 83
The mission of the User Committee is to:
- Ensure that patients’ rights are respected
- Ensure that their health care process is facilitated
- Help improve patient reception and care. The committee meets at least once every quarter.
The facility’s staff and management team are available to hear your observations or complaints regarding your care and how your stay went. If you encounter a problem during your hospitalization, you can first consult the health care team so that they can take all corrective measures needed to address the situation as soon as possible.
If you wish, you can send your complaint or claim to the UC at the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Examination of complaints and claims
II. Ethics committee
Within the framework of continuous improvement of health care quality and promotion of patient care, the Ambroise Paré – Hartmann Private Hospital Group regularly convenes its Ethics committee. As a space for discussion and reflection, the committee comprises doctors, health care staff, and qualified external staff members. The committee aims to identify ethical problems encountered by health care professionals while carrying out their duties. It communicates recommendations arising from its discussions to all of the facility’s staff members.
III. Medical file request
All requests for medical documents must be made by postal mail sent to the facility’s management team, accompanied by a copy of your identification:
|Groupe Hospitalier Privé Ambroise Paré – Hartmann|
|Madame Dominique BOULANGE
27 boulevard Victor Hugo
NB: Medical files are saved for a legal period of 20 years from the date of the patient’s last stay or last outpatient consultation.
IV. Trusted person
At the time of your admission, you may designate a trusted person using a form provided by the health care team. This designation will remain valid throughout the duration of your stay and can be revoked at any time.
What is a trusted person?
Your trusted person can be a member of your family, your partner, a close friend, or even your treating doctor. Their role is to:
- accompany you throughout your health care process and help you during your medical appointments
- be consulted by the doctors to determine your wishes if you cannot be consulted yourself.
Their role is fundamental if your state of health does not permit you to state your opinion or take part in decisions about your health. In this situation, the medical team is required by law to consult the trusted person before making any decisions.
The trusted person should not be confused with your emergency contact, who is alerted by telephone in case your health worsens.
V. Advance directives
All older patients may, if they choose to do so, record their advance directives to specify their end-of-life preferences, in the event that they become unable to express their wishes.
Health care professionals are required by law to respect advance directives, which remain valid indefinitely and can be revoked or revised at any time.
Advance directives enable you to express your wishes regarding, notably:
- Limiting or ceasing treatment in progress
- Transfer to the intensive care unit if required by your state of health
- Use of artificial respiration
- Surgical intervention
- Pain relief even if it leads to death
In order for your directives to be taken into account, it is essential that their existence is known to your loved ones, your trusted person, or your treating doctor.
