Your Medical Record

The results of all diagnostic studies and medical treatment you have received while you are hospitalized or treated as an outpatient are documented in a medical record.  In addition, the medical record will contain physician reports and observations by nurses and other members of your health care team. This information is combined to make up your medical record at Doctors’ Hospital of Michigan (DHM).
