Facilities don’t permit people to take charts home. Every one of them is required to have a privacy policy in place. The statute that was quoted pertains to record storage and retention for paper records in warehouses or offsite facilities until they can be purged, it has nothing to do with letting people take charts home. Attorneys have to follow the same protocol as anyone else who needs to have records released to them. Imagine some driving around with your medical record in their car en route to go home to work and getting into a wreck or having it stolen from their car. The person who asked if the attorney let her take charts home should have used common sense and known that it’s not permitted.
