    ​​Greetings All;

    Recently I have been getting Police Reports sent to my Department to be included in the EMR. I don't not consider this a part of the legal medical record and I am wondering if any of you can share with me where this report so go?

    Thanks,

    ​We also do not consider them a part of the legal record and I would not recommend adding them.
