How to label medical folders
Each hospital determines its medical records system. There are both federal and state laws covering what is contained within medical records. The labeling system, again, may vary from hospital to hospital. Training in the application of such would be internal. Various companies manufacture labels applied to medical files but the use of such labels is not determined by such, rather by the medical organization. If you are curious to know how to organize medical labels for a hospital or practice, that either requires in-house training or general training in medical records in courses.
I have personally built physical medical records files from scratch but only in compliance with the system in place. There is the additional matter of data entry tying the physical record to the electronic records system. For large hospital systems, records may be archived offsite and retrieved by contracted for logistics services. X-ray records in the past were held in temperature controlled room; the rooms smelled of vinegar due to the decomposition of such records across time. The consistency of labeling of these and other medical records is determined by the controlling government departments and the particular health organizations and the hospitals and clinics there in.
