Provided by Medicare, this takes into account different measures of the quality of care that residents receive.
At this time, Greenfield Care Center of Fullerton is not releasing medical records to discharged residents or their legal representatives in person due to the current COVID-19 pandemic Public Health Emergency. However, we do offer other options for obtaining medical records.
Discharged residents may request a copy of their medical records verbally and/or by completing and submitting an Authorization for Release of Personal Health Information form.
You can download and complete the authorization form from our website to submit your medical record request by fax, email or mail. A Medical Records representative can also email you a form to compete, fax, email or mail back to the Center.
Verification of identity may be required. Acceptable forms of identification include driver’s license, state-issued ID, or a valid, current passport.
If you are requesting for copies of medical records, standardized copying charges will be applied in addition to any postal charges or CD ROM charges. Records will only be released via mail or picked up in person with an advanced appointment.
The Medical Records Department’s hours of operation are Monday – Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. The department is closed on weekends and major holidays. Please direct your inquiries to the Med Rec department for status updates or the Center Administrator.
Due to the current PHE, CMS modified the requirement at 42 CFR §483.10(g)(2)(ii) to allow LTC facilities 10 working days to provide a resident’s record rather than the standard two working days. If the requested information is located off-site or if the authorization form is not properly filled out, additional time may be required to process your request.
If you are requesting copies for someone other than yourself, you will need to provide legal documentation that verifies legal guardianship, power of attorney, executorships or next-of-kin relationship to a decedent.
The information below is updated regularly to help ensure residents, family, and resident representatives are kept up to date on our current COVID-19 status. In the event of a positive case, Greenfield Care Center of Southgate has a mitigation plan in place to protect our healthy residents and team members.
