February 29, 2008, Newsletter Issue #117: Always Ask For Copies Of Your Medical Records

Tip of the Week

Before you leave the hospital or medical facility, always request copies of you medical records. Be sure you document the name of the person you spoke to, their contact information, and be sure you get a date on when to expect them if they are not able to deliver them to you before you leave the hospital. By requesting copies as soon as possible, you can avoid the hassle of repeating tests and sending results to another doctor in the future. If you do not receive them by the date promised, be sure to follow up with the person you initially spoke with before you left the facility or hospital.
