What do you do when a hospital loses part of your medical records?
I had a breast MRI done on 9/16. The report I received from the hospital is very concerning. I have had breast cancer twice and I believe that these views are important. I noticed that the views were compared to MRIs I had done in 2017 and 2018 and asked why the MRI I had done on 3/5/2020 was not used. There was much talking around in circles and evasiveness and long story short, the hospital seems to have lost those views. This is a major hospital in NJ. How could this happen? Aren’t there protocols about protecting this information? I question if this information was deleted or misplaced or what. Most of the information I have received so far has come from the facility that performed the missing MRI. The hospital where the MRI was read seems to be staying quiet on any information about this. What do I do? This is like fighting city hall. How can this info just be gone?
