Do hospitals look at an employee's medical record when hiring them? Are medical records confidential?

In brief: Medical records are

confidential. Without your permission they cannot look at your medical records.
If an employer requires drug testing they need to let their employees know the policy as well.

Hospitals usually ask about your medical history but can't have access to your records without your written permission
