  • Treating all of your health information that we collect as confidential.
  • Restricting access to your health information only to those medical and clinical staff that need to know your health information in order to provide our services to you.
  • Only disclosing your health information that is necessary for an outside service company to perform its function on our behalf and the company has by contract agreed to protect and maintain the confidentiality of your health information.
  • Maintaining physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to comply with federal and state regulations guarding your health information.

The laws of confidentiality of the state of Washington cover all medical records. There can be no discussion or transfer of a student's medical records without the student's written consent. This includes parents calling to inquire about a student's health. You may ask to review your record with the physician and make corrections.
