We provide the appropriate parties with the information that they request.

Typically it is annual TB surveillance and titers.

Everyone else usually wants more.

Sent by:        "MCOH-EH" <mcoh-eh-bounces at mylist.net>

I'm in a private 400 bed community hospital in North Carolina. We 
routinely send information from the Employee Health chart for regulatory 
review, such as when OSHA, the Joint Commission or  the NC Department of 
Health is on site. We send only specific information from the chart, such 
as vaccinations, TST's FIT tests pr Hep B immunity.
The hospital's "compliance" and "legal" departments are asking Employee 
Health Services to release the entire chart to them prior to these 
reviews. Does anyone do this, or release the entire employee health chart 
to any other departments owned by the hospital, or is it standard to 
release only information that's asked for to your own hospital's 
legal/compliance departments?
I would appreciate any input since I'm having trouble finding this 
specific information.
