Public records do not include patient medical records or other records that are exempt.
  • No specific language is required to make a request of public records; however, the requester must at least identify the records requested with sufficient clarity to allow Morrow County Hospital to identify, retrieve and review the records.
  • The request does not need to be in writing and the requester does not have to provide his or her identity or the intended use of the requested public record.
  • Public records are to be available during regular business hours and must be made available within a reasonable period of time.
  • If Morrow County Hospital denies the request of any public records or any part of a public record, such denial must include a legal explanation.
  • If portions of a record are both public and exempt, the exempt portions are to be redacted and the rest to be released with a supporting explanation regarding the redacted portions.
  • Those seeking public records will be charged ten cents ($.10) per page. The charge for records downloaded to compact disc is one dollar ($1) per disc. If making copies; however, records transmitted electronically, if feasible, are free to the requester.
