CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL LOS ANGELES
TERMS FOR CALCULATORS AND TOOLS
Last Updated: June 14, 2019
- General. These Calculator(s) and the internet properties, webpages or mobile applications (collectively the “Site”) where these reside are owned and operated by Children's Hospital Los Angeles. These Terms explain how you are permitted to use these digital properties, and any related services therein made available by CHLA. For sake of clarity, the Site, Calculator(s) and all related content, collectively the “Service”.
- Special Legal Disclaimer. CHLA includes clinical tools and content (including the Calculator(s)) intended for use by healthcare professionals. These tools do not give professional advice; physicians and other healthcare professionals who use these tools, databases or Calculator(s) should exercise their own clinical judgment as to the information they provide. THE CALCULATOR(S) ARE NOT INTENDED TO REPLACE CLINICAL JUDGMENT, MEDICAL ADVICE, OR INDIVIDUAL PATIENT CARE AND SHOULD IN NO WAY BE USED AS THE SOLE BASIS OF RELIANCE FOR PRESCRIBING MEDICAL ADVICE, DIAGNOSIS, AND/OR TREATMENT.
Consumers (non-medical professionals) who use the tools or databases do so at their own risk. Individuals with any type of medical condition are specifically cautioned to seek professional medical advice before beginning any sort of health treatment. For medical concerns, including decisions about medications and other treatments, non-medical users should always consult their physician or other qualified healthcare professional.
CHLA’s content developers have carefully tried to create its content to conform to the standards of professional practice that prevailed at the time of development. However, standards and practices in medicine change as new data become available and the individual medical professional should consult a variety of sources.
The contents of the Site and the Calculators, such as text, graphics, and images are for informational purposes only. CHLA does not recommend or endorse any specific tests, physicians, products, procedures, opinions, or other information that may be mentioned on the site.
WHILE INFORMATION ON THIS SITE HAS BEEN OBTAINED FROM SOURCES BELIEVED TO BE RELIABLE, NEITHER WE NOR OUR CONTENT PROVIDERS WARRANT THE ACCURACY OF THE INFORMATION CONTAINED ON THIS SITE.
This Site and the Calculators do not give medical advice or diagnostic services. Medical information changes rapidly. Neither we nor our content providers guarantee that the content covers all possible uses, directions, precautions, drug interactions, or adverse effects that may be associated with any therapeutic treatments.
You are hereby notified that the information contained herein may not meet Your needs. You are advised that, although the information is derived from medical research and literature we cannot guarantee either its correctness, comprehensiveness or currency. You assume sole responsibility for any decisions made or actions taken based on the information contained in the Calculator(s).
YOUR RELIANCE UPON INFORMATION AND CONTENT OBTAINED BY YOU AT OR THROUGH THIS SITE IS SOLELY AT YOUR OWN RISK. NEITHER WE NOR OUR CONTENT PROVIDERS ASSUME ANY LIABILITY OR RESPONSIBILITY FOR DAMAGE OR INJURY (INCLUDING DEATH) TO YOU, OTHER PERSONS, OR PROPERTY ARISING FROM ANY USE OF ANY PRODUCT, INFORMATION, IDEA, OR INSTRUCTION CONTAINED IN THE CONTENT OR SERVICES PROVIDED TO YOU.
