Holiday Celebrations!

It has been a banner year for Richards & Richards as we have celebrated 25 years of serving you!

If you have been by our location, you have noticed construction going on.  Our exterior has received a facelift and we are currently working on interior changes to better serve you.

Coming in the next year you will see brand new access areas!  These will allow multiple clients to work during the same hours in their own private workspace.

We've been blessed this year with many marriages,new babies and safely returning deployed military family members amongst the Richards & Richards employee family (including my new grandson Warren Bray – click here for pictures from this proud grandpa!)

We've also been blessed with amazing clients – and would like to take this moment to say thank you for your business and wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Be Fire Safe This Season

According to the Brentwood Fire and Rescue Department, candles account for nearly 10,000 home fires and approximately 100 deaths every year.

In order to help ensure that your family has a safe and enjoyable holiday season, observe the following fire safety tips:

  • Never leave candles unattended and always place them on a non-combustible surface.
  • When it’s time to place your luminaries, battery operated tea lights are highly recommended.
  • If deep frying a turkey, only use outdoors. Never use a turkey fryer on a deck or in the garage. Last year alone, turkey fryers accounted for over 1,400 home fires.
  • Hold off on bringing that natural Christmas tree indoors as long as you can, and ensure that the stand is filled with water at all times.
  • Never run electrical cords under rugs or in high traffic areas.
  • Use extreme caution when utilizing auxiliary heating devices in your home.
  • Be sure that all smoke and carbon monoxide detectors have fresh batteries and are operating properly.

Medical Records:
After Retirement

Below is the beginning of a wonderful article by Anne Sumpter Arney regarding the process of transitioning medical records when a physician retires:

During the life of their active practice of medicine, physicians must meet obligations to a variety of stake holders, their patients, their partners, their employer, the payors and the regulators.  In the transition to retirement or when you decide to leave the practice of medicine, physicians must wind down these relationships and meet specific contractual and legal obligations.

Richards & Richards provides services for doctors that wish to not worry about the requirements of copying patient records in their retirement.  We provide full service solutions so physicians can transition the records and know that they will be properly maintained and distributed for their retention period.  More information on this service can be found here >>
