Some research has been published indicating that patients that are given their full medical records after release from an in-patient stay have
40% fewer re-admission rates within the first month.
If your in-patient hospital or provider is refusing to provide your medical records then it is appropriate to file a grievance with the State of California and with the provider. Make sure you also contact your insurance provider to let them know this provider/hospital is not cooperating. You may also request a meeting with the attending psychiatrist and/or patient right’s advocate.
If you have completed the necessary forms requesting medical records and have been turned down – we encourage you to file a grievance first with the provider…and then with the State of California if the provider’s grievance process did not address your complaint.
