    I am in the process of writing our Legal Record Policy and Designated Record Set Policy.   Would anyone be willing to share their policies with me?  I want to ensure I am covering everything in our policies.    Thanks.

    Hi Cynthia,
    I am also currently in the process of creating and revising both policies. I just submitted my draft for approval. I used the link below to guide me (scroll to the bottom of the page). What should be included in the DRS and the LMR are based on your facility, its not a one size fits all. My email is if you'd like to pick each others brain.
