It seems like a patient advocate could help you at least delete incorrect information about a boyfriend beating you up. Any incorrect information that is about another patient should be deleted from your medical records.

Some of the comments are so ridiculous. There was another one about me being assaulted at a bar during a weekend pass and getting drunk. What the ****?????? I never did that.

Apparently the hospital records department submits a patient's correction request to the head of department they received care from, if their attending physician no longer works at the hospital. This individual can make the requested changes.

I plan to contact the hospital's family and patient advocacy office after I am done reviewing my records and submitting my correction request.

I'll never seek psychiatric care at any of the local hospitals again. Not after reading my records that are filled with examples of misdiagnosis, systemic racism and cognitive bias.

This is what you get in Canada's capital city. Healthcare is terrible here unless you have cancer or some other critical illness.
