Thanks for your question.
As per the current laws, you cannot get your relatives's hospital record without his/her consent.
That means your relative needs to contact the hospital and authorize the release of his medical information to you.
Then only, the hospital will give you the records.
This is not difficult but proper procedure needs to be followed.

If you have power of attorney, then you should be able to get the records by giving them the copy of the power of attorney.
