Your Hospital Stay:
Shared Medical Record

This is part of our Your Hospital Stay: Guide for Patients & Families. This guide also includes information about Your Role, Your Health Care Team and Visitors.

Reviewing Your Record During Your Stay

We want you to play an active role in your health care. At Enloe Medical Center, we encourage you to read your medical record during your hospital stay to be better informed about your health and the care you receive. Simply let your nurse or doctor know that you would like to review your
medical record, and he or she will arrange a time to review it with you. Your privacy is important to us. If you would like someone in addition to yourself to have access to your medical record, you will be asked to sign an authorization form.

Obtaining Your Record After Discharge

To receive a copy of your medical record to keep, please contact the Medical Records Department two to three business days after you have been discharged from the hospital to allow time for your record to be completed and processed. You will be asked to complete an
authorization form and show a picture ID to receive copies or your medical record. You may obtain the authorization form. If you have any questions, a Medical Records representative may be reached at 332-5518. The Medical Records Department is located at 1531 Esplanade, in the
basement of the hospital, and its hours are as follows: Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Friday 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Closed on holidays. The first 20 pages you receive are complimentary. You may receive these records on paper or CD. Additional pages cost 25ยข per page. Learn more about obtaining medical records.
