Through Ontario legislation (FIPPA) we’ve created a list of the different types of information and records we keep at the hospital. We call this list a directory of records (DOR). If you’re looking for information, the DOR may help you to find the information you need to submit through a freedom of information (FOI) request to GRH.
The DOR is helpful for members of the public seeking information as well as hospitals because:
1. It helps you to narrow your search and locate the information you are looking for;
2. It helps us to find the information you’re looking for quickly; and
3. It’s easier for hospital staff to find information with fewer resources and tends to lower the fees that are charged to the person who requested the information.
We are committed being open and transparent and dedicated to providing an up-to-date DOR as new information is added. If you have any questions or concerns about this, or other privacy matters, we invite you to contact the privacy and access office at 519-749-4275. This link will take you to a document that lists our directory of records in PDF format.
Please note that some records or parts of records are not accessible under the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA). To learn more about exemptions and exclusions under FIPPA please feel free to visit our exemptions and exclusions page.
