Prohibiting Discrimination by Patients Against Employees

At Johns Hopkins Medicine (JHM), we are committed to providing health care in a manner that respects each patient’s right to be an active participant in his or her treatment. Adhering to high patient care standards is a priority, and we are also committed to protecting faculty and staff members, residents, postdoctoral fellows and students from discrimination by patients/health care decision makers. With this goal in mind, a new patient discrimination policy went into effect March 1, 2020, for all Johns Hopkins Medicine employees.
