Arizona Hospitals Cannot Use Federal Law To Hide Incident Reports From Patients

Posted by James D. Campbell | Apr 18, 2017 | 0 Comments

Arizona hospitals frequently try to keep an injured patient from getting reports that document the hospital's mistakes that caused their injury. Longstanding Arizona law, however, requires hospitals to give patients these incident reports. Recently hospitals use a new federal law to try to block patients from getting these reports. This argument is wrong, however, because the new federal law was never intended to prevent a hospital from giving patients incident reports.
