Media policy

The following is our media policy in accordance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) regulations.

Media Access

Whenever the media is on Sanford Health property, the media needs to be accompanied by an associate from community relations. Anyone interviewed and/or photographed for a media story while on Sanford Health property needs to sign a consent form provided by community relations. Sanford Health patients and staff reserve the right to refuse to appear in a media story of any format. The privacy of our patients is of utmost concern and we refuse to infringe upon their legal rights to privacy outlined in HIPAA.

Filming parameters

Media may film outside Sanford Health on public sidewalks or roadways without community relations permission. However, if the media causes an obstruction to patient care, Sanford Health will notify its security department.

Patient information

To request patient status information, a reporter must provide the patient's name. Sanford Health must obtain consent from the patient or next of kin to release information.

  • SERIOUS: Vital signs may be unstable and not within normal limits. Patient is acutely ill. Indicators are questionable.
  • CRITICAL: Vital signs are unstable and not within normal limits. Patient may be unconscious. Indicators are unfavorable.
  • DECEASED: The death of a patient can be reported by the system after the next of kin or legal authorities have been notified.
