Confidentiality

  • University Health Services health records are kept strictly confidential according to HIPAA guidelines. They are never part of the student’s academic record or the employee’s personnel file. All information about our patients, even acknowledgment of their visits, is confidential and cannot be released to any other office, individual, or parent without the patient’s written consent.
  • Behavioral health providers have a professional obligation to protect the patient from himself and others if he/she is perceived to be in imminent danger of hurting himself or others. A behavioral health provider is also required by law to report child or elder abuse.
