§ 117.42. Control register.
The emergency service shall maintain a control register for reference. The register shall contain, at a minimum the name, date and time of arrival of each patient. The name of those dead on arrival shall be entered in the register. The control register shall indicate whether the patient has ever been a patient at the hospital, in order to facilitate coordination of patient medical records. Unless and until a permanent record number can be assigned to the records of a new patient, the control register shall contain, for each patient, a record number which shall also appear on all records pertinent to the care rendered that patient by the emergency services. These records shall be retained for at least 3 years.
