Florida Supreme Court: Patients have right to check hospital records

AP/Orlando Sentinel, March 6, 2008
The Florida Supreme Court says patients have a right to check records on past mistakes made by their doctors and hospitals, no matter how old those files are. The justices rejected an appeal from hospitals claiming that right should apply only to records created since November 2004, when voters adopted a "patients' right to know" amendment. The high court also ruled parts of a law limiting patient access to those records are unconstitutional.
