policy 0209 : High Profile Patients

The University of Virginia Medical Center is committed to serving the health care needs of all its patients. Occasionally, a patient may have unique security and/or privacy needs due to the patient’s position, fame or circumstance (referred to hereinafter as High Profile Patient). Whether such patients request security or privacy measures in advance or are admitted emergently or otherwise without prior notice, the Medical Center shall make a reasonable effort to ensure that any enhanced measures determined to be necessary and appropriate are communicated to and implemented in the unit or area where the patient will be receiving care and treatment.
