S.F. No. 746 - Health Records Act
Author: Senator Jim Carlson
Prepared By: Katie Cavanor, Senate Counsel (651/296-3801)
Date: March 6, 2015


SF 746 includes in the definition of “patient” as it applies to the Minnesota Health Records Act, the adult children of a deceased patient.  Currently, the surviving spouse and parents of a deceased patient are included in the definition of  patient.  This would add the adult children, thereby allowing the adult children access to the deceased patient’s medical records.
