Some rights can only be denied if “Good Cause” exists. The facility must show it has good reason to believe that there is “good cause” because:

  • The exercise of the right would be injurious to the patient, or;
  • It would seriously infringe on the rights of others, or;
  • The facility would suffer serious damage if the right is not denied;
  • And there is no less restrictive way of protecting these three interests.
