Citations—Hospital Records | Print |

Hospital records are business records. These are created at the time and any information about that hospitalization should be considered primary. However, any information about the patient’s medical history should be evaluated to determine if it was provided by the patient or someone else in the family, a friend, or even an ambulance driver.

Elements of the citation could include: name of the name of the patient, information about the patient, hospital, city, state, repository, repository address, film number, and date accessed.
