Ambulance Patient Records

Ambulance Patient records

The City of Hamilton maintains records, called Ambulance Call Reports, of interactions paramedics have with their patients for five years. Statutory agencies (law enforcement, Ministry of Labour), patients, their lawyers and insurance companies can request these records. These records are protected under the Personal Health Information Protection Act (PHIPA) and they cannot be released without the signed consent of the patient or a legal order compelling its production. If the patient is incapable of providing consent, a signed release can be provided by a guardian or appropriate legal representative of the patient.

A record will include notes from the time that the ambulance arrives until the time that the patient leaves the care of our paramedics.

Cost

The cost of this service varies from year to year. Call 905-540-5782 to find out the cost for 2016.  If we are unable to locate a report, no fee will be charged.
