How to obtain a copy of a Patient Care Record 

Patients as well as parents or guardians of minor patients may receive a copy of their patient care record (PCR) in person at the EMS business office at 331 S. McDowell St., Raleigh.


Alternatively, patients may receive a PCR copy via mail by sending a Notarized Authorization for Release of Patient Record form via U.S. Mail.

Legal Designee of Patient
 may receive a copy of the PCR in person at the business office with a legal document granting authority. Family relationship does not qualify as legal designee of patient.


Alternatively, a designee may receive a PCR copy via mail by sending a Notarized Authorization for Release of Patient Record form via U.S. Mail and a photo copy of the legal document granting authority.

Law Offices may receive a copy of a PCR with a Notarized Authorization for Release of Patient Record form. Law offices must use the Wake County form. Releases created by the law office are not accepted. Law offices may pick up in person or via U.S. Mail.  Faxes are not accepted.

Judge-Signed Papers (court orders, warrants, etc.) allow release of PCR without other documentation.
