Capturing data

In order to offer you a good maternity period, Kraamzorg Zuid Gelderland needs information from you. We have always handled this data with care. Because we are also bound by the Medical Treatment Agreement Act (WGBO). Our employees adhere to the rules of the law.

Since May 25, 2018, there is a new law: the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The data falls under the provisions of Articles 7:446-7:468 of the Civil Code. This law stipulates, among other things, that you have the right to know which data is recorded and why. that data is recorded. After your permission, the data that contributes to the provision of good care is recorded. We will ask you this at the time of registration and more often if necessary. In some cases it may be important for the provision of care that an employee of Kraamzorg Zuid-Gelderland consults with another care provider involved. The employee can only do this if you have given permission in advance.

Information to third parties

Information will not be provided to third parties without your permission.
Exception to this is the midwife and those who are involved in the provision of maternity care on behalf of and/or on behalf of KZG. We only do this if providing information is necessary for the work to be carried out. To comply with the legal obligation or comply with the child abuse reporting code, permission does not need to be requested for the safety of the child/family. After the death of the client, KZG will provide access to the retained data to the client’s surviving relatives if requested. We only do this if the client has given written permission for this or if we can assume this.

Duty of silence

The employees of Kraamzorg Zuid-Gelderland who you speak to during your pregnancy and maternity period will keep your necessary information in a maternity care file. The employees are obliged to strict confidentiality (the so-called ‘obligation of confidentiality’). It is true that colleagues may need to look at the file, but this only happens if it contributes to good care.

You have the right to view all stored data in your file. If you believe that it contains incorrect information, you have the right to have it changed. And if it does not conflict with the legal retention periods, you also have the right to have the data deleted.

And data is provided jointly and anonymously. This means that the data cannot be traced back to individuals. We are obliged to account for (parts of) the care provided.
