The General Assembly has ended, the current status is the final status.
AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 11 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO THE FALSIFICATION OF BUSINESS RECORDS.
This Bill expands the offense of falsifying business records by including the act of altering or modifying and creating false medical records. Currently, no specific statute exists to prevent a person from falsely creating, altering, or modifying a medical record. Expanding the offense of falsifying business records to include medical records will be a useful tool for combating healthcare provider fraud, protecting patients, and assisting patients in ensuring the integrity of their medical records.
