I'm trying to get the medical records from my daughter's birth, and I am getting a bit of a run-around. I got all the records from my pregnancy from the OB, along w/a short summary of the birth. But no EFM tape, which I asked for specifically (during the birth, the sOB said there were problems w/baby & justified a vacuum extraction...I want to know if there really were problems...dd APGARed 9 & 10). I asked at the hospital about a year ago, and they said they don't keep the records, they go to the Dr's office (is that BS?). I went back to the OB after realizing the EFM tape wasn't in there & asked for it specifically. The gal hemmed & hawed & said it'd be in storage & she'd "get back to me," which I don't think she will. So I'm sending a letter certified mail, but I also want to know if I'm barking up the wrong tree. I'm thinking both the OB & the hospital should have it, but I really don't know about these things.Anybody know?
