Here at St. Joseph’s Continuing Care Centre your privacy is important to us.
In keeping with our core values of Excellence and Integrity, we have established information practices which protect the privacy of all personal information in our custody and control.
Our information practices specify how we collect, use, store, share, provide access to and dispose of personal information. They also comply with Ontario’s Personal Health Information Protection Act, 2004.
Personal Health Information is any verbal, written or electronic information about you, your health or healthcare history. It includes your name, date of birth, address, phone number and health care number. Personal Health information may also include tests, treatment and care information, and personal as well as family information.
We base our information practices on ten internationally recognized privacy principles: accountability; identifying purposes; consent; limiting collection; limiting use, disclosure and retention; accuracy; safeguard; openness; individual access and correction of personal information; and challenging compliance.
