Critical Points

* Medical records are critical to all medical-legal issues.

* The purpose of the medical record is to facilitate good medical care.

* More information does not always make for better records.

* Records must never be altered or fabricated.

* Physicians must not disclose a patient's medical information unless authorized by the patient or public health and safety laws.
