Subject: Expunge a Medical Record

1.  Expunge a Medical Record

Posted 9 days ago

Hello all, my organization received a court order to expunge any reference to 302 commitment from an inpatient electronic record.   

We have never received a request like this before and are not sure how to handle since the 302 commitment is mentioned throughout various pieces of the electronic documentation which will remain in the medical record.

Have any of you encountered this before? If so can you please let me know how you handled?
Thank you,

Erin Jack
