Patient's Rights

Hi Everyone. I hope you are all okay. Does anyone know if you can get copies of your medical records in Connecticut? My brother has been in and out of the hospital for the last month. The Doctor says he has cirrhosis of the liver. He is 42 years old. None of us from his family have been consulted. He has never seen any records of all the tests that have been done over the last four weeks. Can he get copies of all the tests?

Sorry this is not about lung cancer but everyone here has been so supportive through my father's illness and death, I was hoping someone could give me advice.

Thanks for any help.

Nancy

Hello Nancy. Yes your brother has the right to see his records. The doctor will photocopy them and then give them to him as the orginals must be kept in the file.
