Medical Legal Document

The medical legal document is a systematic way in which hospitals keep track of the patients and their medical history. It contains the specific medical information related to the patient. This is maintained and updated throughout the time period within which the patient is admitted. This contains observations, diagnoses, medication etc. pertaining to the patient and the treatment followed. The hospital is obligated to produce an accurate medical legal document. Any minor error can be life threatening and also become a legal problem for the hospital. Only certified professionals can compile the medical legal document and this also needs to follow standard format under the State Code of regulations.
