You are entitled to receive clear information from those treating you about :
- your state of health
- possible treatments and interventions along with their benefits and risks
- the guarantee of reimbursement of your treatment by compulsory basic health insurance.
Do not hesitate to ask questions so you can make a decision based on all the information available. If you wish, a close friend or relative may accompany you. On request, you will receive a written summary of the explanations. You can also request a second opinion from a doctor who is external to the hospital.
You also have the right to waive receipt of the information and in this case you must express this clearly.
