Well, I called Ventura County Medical Center and got ahold of the records department. According to them they have the request and my name is on the list with others that they have to copy. The people that do the copying will be there tomorrow and will start copying records, once everyones is copied, than they will be prepared for mailing. So it will be another week or 2 before my file will be here. I told the lady that being out here post breast cancer surgery and not being able to get follow-up care because I can't get a copy of my records was not acceptable. She said Oh, dear! I'll put your name at the top of the list, but it will still be at least a week before you DR will get them.

Sounds like someone should introduce them to scanners and faxes....they could get the info ASAP and follow up with the hard copy. I can't believe they didn't give you a copy when you told them you were moving.
What I don't know is why books are written.

Faxes aren't that secure. I remember working in HR of the Health Services here, and our extensions started with 9.
In order to dial out of the building you had to dial 9. So, some hospitals were dialing "9" and getting the patient's results to us at HR, not the other Drs or other depts........
There were over 50 of us that got patient's results, and they are Very Confidential, so we phoned the "offending" ph#, shredded the "results", and had to get our ph#s changed. Who knows who else was getting the "confidential" faxes......

yes, they could email - probably email first to check they have the right one, then when you reply they can re-send with the files........ or do this for the Dr's office.......... s'funny, but sometimes they don't like the patient to see the files. Who knows what they say in their "notes" Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing

With today's technology I find it quite puzzling that they can't send the file immediately as a digital file.

Just got back from having dinner with sissy. Just before we left I call my Dr here in KY to let them know when they can expect the files. The nurse told me that they arrived today. Once they go thru them they will let me know if anything is missing. Rolling my eyes.

LaVonne is hanging in there. She still has alot of health problems. She is driving me crazy with the temp in the house. Due to her illness, she is cold all the time and keep her little heater on in the livingroom. I'm having hot flashes and there are times I can't even stand to be in the livingroom, so I spend most of my day in my room with the fans going as I try to stay cool. God help me this winter! Rolling my eyes.

Red tape! That's the last thing you need when you're trying to move ahead with treatment & recovery. Grrrrr.

Good for you, staying on it and making sure things happen.

BTW, I split the last dozen posts from the "introduce yourself" thread in the Welcome forum off into their own thread again here... not really trying to play "thread police" ... nobody needs to worry about where they post anything here, or if it's on topic etc; I'm not that organized myself, LOL ... just wanted a place where we could concentrate on Marti's recovery.

F.L.A.G. Marty!!
