How To Receive Copies Of Your Medical Record
California law ensures patients access/disclosure of their medical information. The patient access law requires that a patient’s medical record be available upon a written request from the patient, or patient’s representative. Disclosure of a medical record must be accompanied by a patient consent/authorization. The records of your hospital stay are kept in the hospital Medical Records Department (also known as the Health Information Management Department).
