Patients affected by the hepatitis crisis may soon have access to their medical records. Metro announced that an inventory of the files is now complete.
Patients treated at the clinics in question between January 2006 and March 2008 can submit a written request for a copy of their records.
The requests must include a medical release request form that can be downloaded from the Las Vegas Metro Police Department website or picked up from any LVMPD area command.
The request must include a copy of your valid picture identification, along with the mailing address that you wish to have the records sent.
All requests should be sent to:
P.O. Box 95546
Las Vegas, Nevada 89119-5546.
Patients who have not received their records within one week may call (702) 828-0170 to check on the status of their request. The phone line is a message recording service where patients can leave their name, phone number, birth date and last four digits of their social security number.
Patients will receive a call back within 24 hours. Patients who were treated at the clinics prior to 2006 who wish to obtain their records must follow up with representatives from the clinics.
