An Iowa father has been advised he no longer has access to his daughter’s medical records now that she has turned 12 years of age and the hospital policy – tied to federal law – has raised a red flag regarding parental rights.
“As a parent, I was really concerned,” Kevin Christians told the local ABC affiliate. “I really can’t understand why they would implement this policy.”
Christians received a letter from the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics (UIHC) informing him he was losing access to his daughter’s records and asked KCRG-TV to investigate.
“We believe that children at this age should take a more active role in their own health care and have a choice to keep some information private,” the letter says.
