    Default Continuity of Care Patient Rights

    My question involves medical malpractice in the state of: Washington

    I was terminated over the phone without notice after 10 years of being a patient. What do I have to file to get my health care back after being wrongfully discharged?

    Default Re: Continuity of Care Patient Rights

    The Physician does not need a reason to discharge you from his/her practice. You cannot force them to treat you.

    They do have an obligation to treat you , in an emergent situation only, for no more than the next 30 days or until you find a new Physician, whichever comes first.

    You should be receiving written notice of your discharge with directions regarding obtaining copies of your medical records
