    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.

    Thanks Rob! And Drinkofwatr i am so sorry for the terriable thing you went through! What an awful thing for a dr to say!

    By the way Rob and/or anyone else listening, i went to her for 13yrs and not to get any but the last 3 is making me evevn that much angrier. How do i go about getting the rest? I honestly want to go over there and confront he rbut i dont know what they will say and/or do. My husband is stil so furious he cant talk about it yet because he wants to go take a bat to her when he thinks about it. SO FRUSTRATING! I have REALLT important things from 10 yrs ago that arent in my posetion, how dare SHE pick and choose what to give me and to top it all off by saying im just depressed,high anxiety and stressed. UGH!

    Jeannette...

    In Ohio the law reads....
    There is no set rule in Ohio for how long medical doctors or hospitals have to keep their medical records. However, state law may require other health care providers to keep your medical record for a certain period of time. For example, chiropractors in Ohio must keep their treatment records at least five (5) years after a patient ends his care. Many health care providers keep their records longer.


    You have a right to see, get a copy of, and amend your medical record for as long as your health care provider has it.


    (Amend means add to it....)



    Regarding her notes...

    You have the right to see and get a copy of your medical record. You
    also have the right to correct your medical record by having information
    added to it to make it more complete or accurate. This right is called the
    right to amend your record.

    Your medical record includes such things as:
    • Information that identifies you, such as your name and Social Security number.
    • Information that you tell your doctor, such as:
    o Your medical history.
    o How you feel at the time of your visit.
    o Your family health history.
    • The results of your examination.
    • Test results.
    • Treatment received in a hospital.
    • Medicine prescribed.
    • Notes that your doctor takes about you.
    • Other information about things that can affect your health or health care.
    You have the right to get and amend these records whether they are kept on paper or
    on a computer.


    So, you can only amend your record by adding to it, but not taking away from it....like her comments for instance.

    Hope this helps...
