    access to student/patient records is restricted according to provisions of section 33.13 of the new york mental hygiene law, regardless of the age of the record. any rome state school records mentioning students are restricted and any disclosure of even a student's admission or discharge data must be authorized by the nys office of mental retardation & developmental disabilities (omrdd).

    I figured there wouldn't be much information available due to HIPAA. It's frustrating to not be able to locate a family member or friend who is in the system.
