House rules and code of conduct

Medical Centre Jan van Goyen will do its utmost to provide you with excellent care and services. This also means that we set great store by mutual respect. For your and our own safety, we observe certain house rules and a code of conduct which is based on: disrespectful behaviour = unacceptable behaviour.

If you behave in an unacceptable manner, we can deny your access to our centre. In addition, unwanted or unacceptable behaviour may lead to criminal or civil legal procedures. Criminal or civil offences will be reported to the police. We retain the right to charge you with any costs resulting from theft or vandalism.

OUR HOUSE RULES

Patients and visitors must be able to show a means of identification. This is a statutory obligation which is also necessary with regard to the patient’s (correct) medical procedure.

Data provision
To register patients quickly and correctly, all patients need to give their health insurance card and/or identification document, as well as their address and contact details to the reception desk staff as and when requested.

Respect
At Medical Centre Jan van Goyen, we treat each other with the utmost respect.

Compliance with agreements
We will maintain the house rules at all times and under all circumstances. When visitors and/or patients do not comply with these rules and agreements, we will first issue a warning. In extreme cases, someone may be officially denied access to our medical centre.

Any official warning or denied access will be recorded in the patient’s medical file. In addition, we register the violation of our house rules in our central incident report system.
