All,
  Does this mean then that there should not be separate medical records groupings and all should be kept 30 years instead of having one group for 30 yrs and one group permanent as we have now?

Thanks for the quick responses,
           Amy

30 years is fairly standard for Employee Health records that might
document a 'needlestick' or blood spill.  I would not try to change it.

  I have been reviewing the archives on the topic of medical records
kept by employers and the retention applied.  We have a separate
category for OSHA requirements being 30 years.   I do not think this is
wise and am looking for references as to why or why not to keep this
information so long.
