Patient Privacy Guidelines
During a crisis situation, please be patient. We will take your name and contact information and we will keep you updated as information develops.

At Carson Tahoe, we value the time and effort of our media contacts and will try to assist any way possible. However, in order to put our patients first, we must protect visitor/guest privacy. CTH adheres to strict Federal Privacy Laws through the HIPAA Act of 1996 so we do not disclose personal medical information to the public.

A representative from the Marketing/Public Relations staff must escort all members of the press when visiting any Carson Tahoe Health facility. Please contact us 24-hours in advance (or as soon as the situation permits) to arrange for an on-site escort. Thank you for your cooperation.
