  • Does LASD get a copy of medical records?

    I am not sure if the medical/psych aspect of the hiring process is limited to the exams we do during the application process or if they request our records from our physicians. Any ideas? Thanks!

    In Washington during the Psych exam they ask you to disclose any therapy you may have received and an approximate date of when they occurred. They then ask you to sign a disclosure for your medical records. I vaguely remember an option to decline but if you did you basically failed the psych as they need to know all of this information.

    For the medical I had to disclose all injuries and approximate date of injuries and sign a waiver to release my medical records. So in a gist if you are trying to hide something it won't work, its always better to be honest and disclose and let the chips fall where they may.

      As part of the medical, you will; be asked to list all the medical providers who have treated you, and all the injuries and illness you have had. You will also be asked to sign releases, authorizing everyone who has treated you to provide copies of all their medical records to meddical staff of the agency you are applying with. You will also sign documents authorizng anyone and everyine to release any infoprmation and documents they may have related to your personal history and fitness for the job you are seeking.

      Omitting anything/anyone is not a good idea. With respect to illness/injuries, insurance repositories have the names of every doctor or medical provider who has filed a claim against your coverage. Using thje release you signed, they will get a copy of their records If there is a providere left off.

      If you refuse to sign a release, it will be deemed that you have declined to participate nin the pre-employment medical exam and you will be disqualified.

      Going too far is half the pleasure of not getting anywhere

        But I agree, do not hide anything.

        A buddy that applied to lapd recently said they did not ask for records during medical, however he did not have any issues so that is probably why they did not ask.

      That's highly unusual because if an issue came up during the medical exam they would have to contact the candidate to complete a waiver. They usually just include in the pack of docs to complete.
