I own Hair Secrets in Fairlawn Plaza. I am closing the business on Nov 30, 2016. I have been here for 26 years. I sell wigs, breast prosthesis and pocket bras to women who have breast cancer. I want to know what I need to do with these files, how long to store. Also, if Stormont -Vail takes over this business and my clients go there, I want to give them the files. Do I still have to store these files or will the transfer
be sufficient. Stormont-Vail has not agreed to do the transfer as yet. We are still in the talking stage.
JA: Have you documented this or discussed it with HR?
Customer: You are the first person I have contacted. I have no idea who I need to contact. I contacted my accreditating organization about this but the person I spoke with seemed unsure and said either 7 or 10 years of storage. I need an answer I can feel secure about.
JA: Is the employment agreement "at will
," union, full time or part time?
Customer: I don't have an employment agreement. I have 2 part-time employees.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: I need to know the HIPA rules on medical records.
