The purpose of this HGOPY Patient's Charter is to inform women, mothers, adolescents and other persons who attend or stay in our hospital on their rights and obligations upon arrival, during their stay and on their output. This charter does not pretend to address all situations in which the user of HGOPY may be confronted.
DEFINITIONS AND GENERAL PRINCIPLES

It provides them with the preventive, curative or palliative care that their condition requires, and ensures continuity of care after their eventual admission.
During these treatments and care, the taking into account of the painful, physical and psychological dimension of patients, and the relief of suffering, is a constant concern of all our stakeholders.
