Notice of Privacy Practices
Valley Pediatric Group will maintain patient records as follows:
Records will be maintained for all current patients of Valley Pediatric Group.
All records of patients who have not formally requested a transfer of records to
another physician will be maintained until the child reaches the age of 18 or
becomes emancipated, or until six years from the last patient encounter,
whichever comes latest.
Records that are required by contractual obligation or federal law to be
maintained for a longer period of time will be maintained per those requirements.
Once a patient formally requests transfer of records to another medical provider for the
purpose of assuming primary medical care of that patient, Valley Pediatric Group may,
at its discretion, destroy all records for that patient once the records transfer has been
achieved. If records are destroyed, they will be destroyed in a manner that protects
patient confidentiality, such as by incineration or shredding.
