We aim to treat our patients courteously at all times and expect our patients to treat our staff in a similarly respectful way. We operate a zero-tolerance policy and take seriously any threatening, abusive or violent behavior against any of our staff or patients. If a patient is violent or abusive, they will be warned to stop their behavior. If they persist, we may exercise our right to take action to have them removed, immediately if necessary, from our patient list.
