Condition Report Information

Condition report inquiries must include a name and meet HIPAA regulations regarding the release of patient information. Methodist personnel will not inquire about a condition report without a patient name.

It is also helpful to include the age, gender and approximate time the patient was transported to the hospital.

Information regarding patients transported to the hospital via private vehicle will only be provided with the written consent of the patient.
