After a doctor dies, what happens to patients records?
Need my medical records from 50 years ago.
There are companies that store permanent records including Law, pharmacy, company and medical. The records are placed in boxes and stored in a vaulted warehouse. Perhaps there. For how long I don't know.
they are stored,for how long i don't know,ask your doctor
Sold on ebay
The patient should be contacted and offered a copy of the records. After that they either go to the state medical board to store or the doctor who may have bought the practise.
a hospital is only required to keep records for 10 years..too many files to store..
