Welf. & Inst. Code 5328.9
If a patient applies for employment and such employer requires the patient's hospital records, the records shall be forwarded (at the patient's request) to a qualified physician or psychiatrist representing the employer. Physician or administrative officer responsible for the patient may refuse to disclose records if they find that such disclosure is contrary to the patient's best interests. Physician must notify the patient within five days of such refusal to disclose. If disclosure to the patient himself would not be in the patient's best interest, the physician must give a formal notice of such decision to the superior court of jurisdiction.
