What are goals, standards, and requirement for an effective physician/patient relationship?

A month later J. R. contacted a lawyer who requested her medical records. After the third request to the medical records department was unsuccessful, the lawyer requested a subpoena for the medical records. An unidentified woman representing the hospital left a detailed message of the specifics of the subpoena and the status of the release of the medical record on the lawyer’s office voice mail. A week later, finally J. R.’s medical records arrived at her lawyer’s office. The education checklist was found after a thorough review of the medical record. The signature on the education checklist in the medical records was the same on the education checklist J. R. produced to the lawyer, the dates were the same. The difference was, the education checklist in the medical record was complete, indicating J. R. received proper care for her wound site while in the hospital, and received instructions on how to clean her post surgical wound site.
