The Right Response to a Records Request

Many physicians will face a medical liability claim at some point during their practice – and most liability claims mean a request for patient records. Join us on the latest episode of Healthcare Matters, Patient Records Requests: What You Need to Know, as we discuss how to respond to patient records requests with Richard J. Rymond, a trial attorney at Reminger Co., LPA who specializes in medical and dental liability, as well as other types of professional, general and commercial liability. In the first part of our interview, Richard explains how physicians should be careful to respond promptly and courteously, and with the complete information that is requested. He also stresses the importance of not making any changes, additions or alterations to patient records. Even if the physician has good intentions, as Richard explains, the consequences can be severe and can expose the physician to additional claims.
