Reviewing Your Records During Your Stay
At Enloe, we want you to play an active role in your health care. We encourage you to read your medical record during your hospital stay to know more about the care you receive.
Let your nurse or doctor know that you would like to see your medical record. They will arrange a time to review it with you. Your privacy is important to us. If you would like someone else to have access to your medical record, we’ll ask you to sign an authorization form.
Records You Can Request
The following are examples of documents we can provide. Each may consist of many pages. Medical records from other hospitals should be requested from those organizations.
- History and physical report
- Discharge summary report
- Consultation report
- Progress notes
- Lab report
- Operation report
- Pathology report
- Physical or occupational therapy notes
- Other specialized tests
Getting Your Records After Discharge
In-person visits to our Medical Records office may be limited due to the COVID-19 pandemic. But you can access your records in a few different ways.
Sign up for MyChart. You can review some of your medical record and even request additional information be sent to you.
