Patient Forms

Before receiving care as a patient at NYU Langone, we ask that you complete and sign several forms to make sure that you understand your rights and responsibilities. We encourage you to read and understand the forms prior to signing them at your visit. Learn more about forms for an inpatient visit, forms for an outpatient visit, and forms for visits to a doctor’s office.

If you have any questions when reading these forms and preparing for your hospital visit, please email registrationinformation@nyumc.org. Please contact your doctor’s office or the treatment location if you have questions about your scheduled doctor’s visit or test.

Types of Visits

You may be coming to NYU Langone for a doctor’s office appointment or for a hospital stay as an inpatient, outpatient, or for observation. The forms you need to fill out vary depending on the type of visit, which include the following: 

  • An inpatient stay at a hospital, which usually lasts at least two nights, often for surgery, medical treatments, or to stabilize a serious illness or injury. 
  • An outpatient stay, which may take place at a hospital or one of our outpatient care centers, where you may have tests, a variety of treatments, or minor surgery. The stay is typically a few hours. 
  • Observation, which is a specific kind of outpatient care. People under observation remain in a hospital bed while being monitored for a serious change in their medical condition, usually for less than 24 hours. During that time, a healthcare team decides if the patient needs to be admitted to the hospital.
  • A visit to a doctor’s office to receive care from a physician or another medical professional.

Forms for Your First Visit

During your first visit to an NYU Langone facility, including a hospital, care location, or doctor’s office where the NYU Langone logo is displayed, you need to read and sign the Patient Privacy and HIPAA Rights forms.

For your safety, we use the PatientSecure® system. With biometric technology, the system scans a unique feature of your hand to simplify patient registration and provide the most accurate form of patient identification for future visits to NYU Langone.
