​​ATTENTION! Due to the volume of messages I receive regarding interruption or withdrawal of medical care, particularly regarding access to opioid medications, I ask that you READ THE GUIDELINES for PAIN WARRIORS.  It will take a village of individuals with first hand information, personal physical evidence to bring effective action. As a volunteer advocate, and with my fingers on the pulse of the community, I understand the crisis those of us living with chronic pain face.

According to MedlinePlus, (the National Institute of Medicine, NIH, U.S. Library of Medicine) "As a patient, you have certain rights. Some are guaranteed by federal law, such as the right to get a copy of your medical records, and the right to keep them private.” 

Each state and most health care delivery organizations have a “Patient’s Bill of Rights.” Patient’s rights laws may vary from state to state, or organization to organization, but as a health care consumer, you have some entitlement. You have the right to:

  • Respectful care
  • Be informed about your illness, treatment options, and risks
  • Refuse a treatment, as permitted by law
  • Privacy and confidentiality


"Safeguarding the rights of others is the most noble and beautiful end of a human being."
