Health Law Question: Who owns a patient's original medical records . . . the doctor or the patient?

Asked By: Addicted to Yahoo! Answers
For example, let's say a podiatrist takes an in-office x-ray and the patient requests the x-ray film to keep for her personal file. Does the podiatrist have to give the patient the original x-ray, or is the patient entitled only to a copy of the x-ray? Another example, let's say that same podiatrist writes hand written notes in the patient file. Can the patient demand the original handwritten notes, or is s/he entitled only to receive a copy of those handwritten notes? I am trying to determine who actually owns original medical records, x-rays, MRIs, diagnostic films, patient charts, etc. in the medical/health field. Is there a federal law that outlines an answer to this question? Is the answer state specific? Is the answer medical profession specific? Any legal citations are appreciated, as well as any responses from lawyers knowledgeable in this area of the law.

Does a kid have to be beaten in order to be abused?

Asked By: Chaney34
A 15 year old has approached me (responsible adult) about abuse from her parents (dad). I've tried mediating, I've called DCFS, I've had the child talk to school counselors nothing seems to be working. When she's beaten up she's too scared to say anything. By the time she gathers enough courage to speak, evidence has gone away. Only one time have friends seen bruises, but by the time the Social Worker arrived, the bruises were gone. She's still getting beat up by her dad. However, everyone I talk to says if there's no evidence there's nothing they can do? Is our system really going to sit here and wait till she gets beaten to death before they do anything about it? Is there no contact number that I can give her or someone I can refer her to? Any help is sincerely appreciated. Los Angeles, CA area.
