prenatal records

  1. At what point in the pregnancy do your physicians offices send over a copy of the patient's prenatal records? One hospital I worked at we got a copy of them starting with their first visit and on up. The hospital I presently work at the physicians don't send them over until their 38th week! I hate not having this info available when they come in as outpatients.

    We get them by month six. The reasoning is that they are at viability (maybe). Some send them over earlier if they come in for any NSTs.

    if we get them at all it is at 36 wks. if they become an inpt prior to that we ask the office to fax a copy over

    We get them after the 28wk lab results are back, and then an update on their Broup-B strep results after their done at about 36 weeks. You're right, though, it does make it nice to have them if they come in for PTL or something.
