school wants access to all of dd\'s medical records
Hi again everyone,
I have yet another question. Our school district is requesting we sign a form allowing certain personnel access to her medical records. I am very concerned about this, and uncomfortable. I do not like so many people having access to such personal information, but want another opinion.
In an emergency situation my feeling is her medic alert bracelet should be sufficient as far as medical personnel are concerned. As far as for her 504 Plan, my doctor's letters should be sufficient. My doctor has already declined offering them test results as none of them are doctor's and feels actual numbers are of no value to them and does not want to be held liable should the information fall into the wrong hands.
Below is a copy of the form they want us to sign.
Thanks so much for any opinions!!!
