Yes, we shred Medical Records and X-rays

Medical records are eligible for destruction in a minimum of seven years from the anniversary of the last date of treatment or, if the patient is a minor, seven years from the anniversary of the last date of treatment or until the minor reaches 21 (whichever is later). Do not destroy medical records that relate to any civil, criminal, or administrative proceeding if you know the proceeding has not been finally resolved. Follow any state and federal regulation that requires you to retain medical records longer than the above time periods. Read Retention of Medical Records

Doctors, hospitals and others who offer medical services hold all kinds of personal information about patients. Since many services are rendered on credit, they often have data that falls under laws requiring confidentiality and certain document disposal methods, such as shredding.

They also, obviously, keep records about their patients’ medical conditions and histories. That data is considered private and must be kept so. More info about Medical Files shredding or Call (978)636-0301.
