Kemptville District Hospital is subject to the The Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA), the Ontario law that provides a right to access information under the control of institutions in accordance with the principles that:
- Information should be available to the public
- Necessary exemptions from the right of access should be limited and specific, and
- Decisions related to the disclosure of the hospital's information should be reviewed independently of the hospital controlling that information (i.e., by the Information and Privacy Commissioner, or IPC)
FIPPA also protects the privacy of personal information of individuals held by institutions. It provides individuals with a right of access to, and correction of, that information.
