The Residents’ Bill of Rights

"Northern Health involves people and their families in their own health and health care. Individuals and families feel respected and are treated compassionately."  -- NH vision statement

Northern Health is committed to protecting the rights of the residents we care for. All residents have the right to live with dignity, respect and safety and the Residents’ Bill of Rights is prominently displayed in all our care facilities to ensure residents and caregivers are made aware of the standard set of rights.

More Information

The Residents' Bill of Rights is a comprehensive set of rights grouped into four main themes: commitment to care; rights to health, safety and dignity; rights to participation and freedom of expression; and rights to transparency and accountability. For more information, see:
