A nurse is probably trying to *** me because the hospital screwed up pretty badly and so now he claims he cannot let me review the last note the physician/resident wrote during rounds or review lab work with me. It literally takes 10 minutes. He said they make even patients use mychart. I am listed on the paperwork they provided for POA as an alternate. The way the document is worded is that alternates have access to medical documents and patient records immediately if he cannot make decisions. This is from the state and the hospital had us fill it out. I do know that we are pissed about multiple botched procedures. Like I am pretty forgiving but I honestly feel like they almost killed him. I have a tad bit feeling that day shift RN may have made notes and hid them from the patient mychart as facility allows nurses to hide notes. I do feel better about the prognosis as it probably is fixed and I am impressed with the attending note analyzing some potential fever causes. Anyway, is this a policy at your hospitals? That patients and their POAs cannot access medical records or review it with the nurse? they are claiming that patients cannot review the notes or lab work either. No policy provided. I'm threatening tomorrow to make the resident come down in the morning and read off every lab value to me as the nurse said he could see if the resident would review it with me.
