Media On Campus
For patient confidentiality purposes, Renown Health policies require media to be escorted by the public relations staff at all times.
PR staff will gladly make parking arrangements, notify the appropriate hospital staff and help you find your destination.
Stand Ups/Live Broadcasts
Media may conduct stand ups and live broadcasts on our campuses. In the interest of patient confidentiality and traffic flow, a staff member will help you find the best location for your story.
We ask you to respect our obligation to protect our patients' well-being and legal right to privacy.
Patient Condition Inquiry
We follow regulations of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) for all patients, including patients of public interest. HIPAA regulations specify which information may and may not be released without authorization from a patient.
Patient privacy regulations allow us to only share patient condition information about patients that appear in our directory.
Media inquiries require correct spelling of the patient's first and last name.
Definitions of "Condition" used by Renown Health
When describing a patient's condition, we can only release the following patient statuses:
Good - Vital signs such as pulse, temperature and blood pressure are stable and within normal limits. Patient is conscious, comfortable and there are no complications.
Fair - Vital signs are stable and within normal limits. Patient is conscious and alert although may be uncomfortable or in pain and may have minor complications.
Serious - Vital signs may be unstable or outside normal limits. The patient is acutely ill or injured and may have major complications.
Critical - Vital signs are unstable or outside normal limits. There are major complications.
Note: "Stable" is not a condition.
