“Clinical records under the public health law”

A home health agency must maintain clinical records for each patient and maintain them for 6 years following termination of services. When home health services are terminated, the record must show the date and the reason for termination. If a patient transfers to another home health agency, a copy of his record must be provided to the other home health agency upon request.

The home health agency must maintain records for each client who receives nonskilled care for 3 years following termination of services.
