Video: Checking Patient Identification


"I Check Two, Do you?"

Lahey Hospital & Medical Center is committed to providing you with the safest and highest quality care. We want to be sure that you always receive the right care and treatment and patient identification is an essential step in meeting this commitment. We will check or ask you for your name, date of birth and/or medical record number continuously while you are a patient here.

We recognize that the frequent asking for the same information may at times be frustrating for you. However, we do this for your safety. The following video features Lahey Hospital & Medical Center care providers explaining why patient identification is important to how they provide the safest and highest quality care to you.

We hope the video helps you understand why patient identification is so important.
