    Facility/Hospital has an agreement with an Employer to provide onsite Work Health services for their employees.  (Flu vaccines, work related injuries, new hire physicals, CPR forms, vision screening records, etc)  The facility provides an RN to staff the onsite office.  Paper records are generated and kept in the RN's office onsite at the Employer.  When the agreement is terminated, who owns these records?  The facility or the employer?

    I've had similar experiences in past organizations. Our position was that the employer owns and manages the records of their staff. We requested copies of information, such as TB and background check for any staff who would remain when the employer discontinued their relationship/contract with the organization.
