Reviewing Records Before Providing Them

In Part IV of our series, Patient Records Requests: What You Need to Know, we ask attorney Richard J. Rymond of Reminger Co., LPA whether or not a physician should review patient records prior to providing them. As Richard explains, reviewing records to ensure that they are complete is a necessary task that a physician should do. It is also vital to make sure that there is nothing in the record that does not belong, such as a misfiled document from another patient’s chart. Any documents that do not belong in the patient’s records should be removed prior to providing the records.
