    Angry My X-Dr. DID "clean out" my records!

    I just got my records today from my dr. i recently said "Goddbye" to. She wasnt taking me seriously enough for years, she forgot about my low white blood cell count,my nosebleeds,other bleeding, arthritis that showed up 10yrs ago,headaches,body aches and my oh so many other symptoms. Shes the dr who said "you're stressed and you have high anxiety Jeannette", Yeah, because of YOU not listening to me! I was told by her that she didnt have the time to piece things together from my records! My husband and i decided ENOUGH! I wish i would have run with the charts in her hand the day we said she wasnt my dr anymore. They "coppied" "all" of my records and sent them to me for the next dr. HAHA What a joke! I have a GREAT specialist who told me "Jeannette, shes going to cleanse them first,thats what bad drs. do to save their a##". Boy did she ever "cleanse" it! She was my dr for 13 yrs and she sent me recors of only the last 3,and even then soooo many things werent there! I couldnt believe it! I am so MAD!!! She picked out what SHE wanted me to have! The very first page states that "Jeannette is very stressed, anxious and seems depressed thats why i believe she THINKS somethings wrong"! She stated that " her and her husband are very irrational about what they THINK is wrong with Jeannette". OMG!!!!!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! I wanted to go to her office and steal my REAL records(the REST of them too!) and SLAP her in her frigin face! Sorry for the anger, its just i am so sick of these god-like drs. Ijust wanted to warn people that you really dont know what is really being said,not said,recorded,not recorded unless you're lucky enough to have a GOOD GP. I have friends who are nurses and they said they see this ALL the time.

    Thanks for listening to me vent!

    OMG jeannette,

    i can not believe that this dr. did this to you....this just verifies that leaving her was the right thing to do. she sounds so bad, her records are probably worthless, so maybe it is better that you start anew with another dr.

    please don't let her get to you.....she obviously doesn't care about you. as a friend of mine says "it is mind over matter....i don't mind cause you don't matter." tell yourself this about her, and don't let her affect you ever again.

    i wonder if there is any way to demand the original records....i wonder if we have any rights.

    you are great, obviously not irrational. if you are stressed, it is her fault. don't let her beat you....you are the winner, not her.

    Awww, thank you you guys,that means alot to hear your kind and supportive words. Yeah, my husband said we are going to go to a lawyer when we get settled in to a new dr. I really like the comment about mind over matter Phyllis, so true. I would think its against the law, but she has all the records so its my word against hers i would think. My other dr told me he has his own records and notes from the past 2 yrs at least of all the troubles and concerns of mine with her being lazy as my dr so thats a GREAT thing to have for the courts!He has records of Every time i came to him with a complaint about pain and illness and he would always ask "what the heck did she do for that Jeannette"? He was Always telling me it wasnt normal what was happening to me and how she wasnt paying any attention to it.Shes a wacko!

    Both the HIPAA Privacy Rule and Ohio law give you rights to your medical record. The HIPAA Privacy Rule sets standards that apply to records held by health care providers across the nation. Ohio law sets standards for records held by doctors, hospitals and other health care providers within the state. Most health care providers must follow both the HIPAA Privacy Rule and Ohio law. If a standard in Ohio law conflicts with a standard in the HIPAA Privacy Rule, your health care provider must follow the law that is the most protective of your rights.

    SUMMARY OF YOUR RIGHTS
    In Ohio you have the right to:
    • See and get a copy of your medical record.
    Your health care provider usually must let you see your medical record and/or
    give you a copy of it within 30 days after they receive your request.
    Your health care provider is allowed to charge you for copying your record. The
    fee per page depends on the number of pages copied. You can also be charged
    the actual cost for postage or delivery.
    • Correct your medical record by having information added to it.
    You have the right to have information added to your medical record to make it
    more complete or accurate. This right is called the right to amend your record.
    • File a complaint.
    You have the right to file a complaint with the Office for Civil Rights, U.S.
    Department of Health and Human Services if you believe your health care
    provider has violated your right to see, get a copy of, or amend your medical
    record. You can also file a complaint with the state agency that regulates your
    health care provider.
    • Sue in Ohio state court to obtain a copy of your medical record.
    You have the right to bring a civil action in Ohio court to obtain your medical
    record if your health care provider fails to furnish your record as requested.

    I just got done reading a story from Teri about a Dr/rheumo who is totally incompetent and negligent, and now I read this. Kinda makes me want to take a frigging flamethrower to these scumbags. In ancient Rome, incompetent lying public servants in positions like this were fed to the lions. I don't know if it's the law in all 50 states, but here in Maine, the "cleansing" or willful altering of a persons medical records for personal gain (read CYA) by anyone employed in the healthcare industry, is a Felony that can get you 5 years in the klink, not to mention losing all of your licenses to practice. I say get a lawyer, load for bear Jeanette, and go after this fraud with a vengeance. Grrrr. Go get em!

    Rob

    P.S. Oluwa, have I told you lately that you are awesome?
