Obtaining EMS, Patient Care Reports
A patient care report is generated whenever Singerly Fire Company assists a sick or injured person. These reports contain confidential medical information and are not part of the public record. Copies of patient care records are available to our patients, their representatives and others as specified by Maryland Public Health – General, Title 4. Statistics And Records, Subtitle 3. “Confidentiality Of Medical Records.”
The Fire Department’s policies and procedures for the release of patient care reports comply with restrictions specified under state law. Singerly Fire Company strives to make the process of obtaining copies of records as easy as possible for those seeking them. However, to allow for processing time, walk-in requests are generally not accepted.
