Where a wife is inseminated artificially with semen donated by a man other than her husband, the physician and surgeon must retain the husband's consent form as part of the medical record. The record must be kept confidential and in a sealed file. However, the physician and surgeon's failure to do so does not affect the father and child relationship. All papers and records pertaining to the insemination, whether part of the permanent record of a court or of a file held by the supervising physician and surgeon or elsewhere, are subject to inspection only through a court order.
All donors of sperm shall be screened for HIV, HBV, HCV, HTLV-1, and syphilis, and found nonreactive before sperm is inseminated unless an exception applies. When sperm from a reactive donor is used as per one of the exceptions, both the donor and recipient must sign consent forms and copies must be kept in their medical records.
