Hello,Welcome to Just Answer. My name is***** and I will be helping you today.
No one can access your medical records without a specific signed consent from you authorizing it. If the paper you signed said that it authorized release, then it does. You should have a copy that you can consult and make sure that you didn't sign such an authorization. Meanwhile, to protect yourself, you can deliver a letter to your doctor's office specifically rescinding any such release to this employer.
No, they cannot review your hospital records unless you sign an authorization giving the hospital the permission to release your records to her/the agency. Hospital records are only viewable by the health care providers who are taking care of you. Even another nurse at the hospital cannot review your records.
Did you need further clarification about this/ If not, I would welcome a positive rating (hopefully a "5") since that's the only way I get credited with answering questions.
Was there anything else you needed to know about this before giving a rating? A rating costs you nothing, but it is the only way I receive credit (or compensation) for my work.
