Medical Records

Maryland Law specifies that a request for any patient medical record must be in writing and must become a part of the person's medical record. The medical records department protects the confidentiality of all patient information and will only release a patient's medical record with the proper consent. If a physician involved in your care needs a copy of your medical record, the medical records department can forward a copy to that physician with your consent.

For purposes other than treatment, requests for copies of records are handled on a case by case basis utilizing state and federal guidelines for the proper release of patient information.
