Patient and Personnel Records; Copies; Examination

Patient records maintained by licensed Florida facilities, including hospitals, are confidential and may not be disclosed without patient consent unless disclosure occurs to specified persons or in specified circumstances (e.g. to physicians for treatment purposes, in response to a court subpoena, etc.). Persons that receive confidential information from a patient record may only use such information for the specified purpose and may not further disclose the information without the patient’s written consent.

Patients may access their medical record by submitting a written request to the facility that maintains their record. Facilities must provide access in response to the patient’s request, but only after the patient has been discharged.
