When a Patient Wants a Copy of Their Medical Records (Video)

Whenever a patient wants a copy of their medical records, usually the patient, family member or nurse will ask for a Medical Record Request Form.   

They can either fill out the form and take it down to the Medical Records Department themselves and get their own medical information once they're discharged. 

Or they can fill out the form and give it to you for you to place it directly on the front of the chart. Usually, the patient will write the address where they want the medical records sent (their doctor or themselves). By placing it directly on the front of the chart, when you break the chart down, the first thing that Medical Records will see is that form request and they can get right on top of it.
