  § 81.14 Record of the proceedings.
    (a) A record of the proceedings shall be made in all cases.
    (b)  The court shall not enter an order sealing the court records in a
  proceeding under this article, either in whole or in part, except upon a
  written finding of good cause, which shall specify the grounds  thereof.
  In  determining  whether  good  cause  has  been  shown, the court shall
  consider  the  interest  of  the   public,   the   orderly   and   sound
  administration  of  justice,  the  nature  of  the  proceedings, and the
  privacy of the person alleged to  be  incapacitated.  Where  it  appears
  necessary  or  desirable, the court may prescribe appropriate notice and
  opportunity to be heard. Court records shall include all  documents  and
  records  of  any  nature  filed  with  the  clerk in connection with the
  proceeding. Documents obtained through disclosure and not filed with the
  clerk shall remain subject to protective orders under the civil practice
  law and rules.
    (c) The court shall not exclude a person or  persons  or  the  general
  public from a proceeding under this article except upon written findings
  of  good  cause shown. In determining whether good cause has been shown,
  the court shall consider the interest of the  public,  the  orderly  and
  sound  administration of justice, the nature of the proceedings, and the
  privacy of the person alleged to be incapacitated.
    (d) At the time of the commencement of the hearing,  the  court  shall
  inform the allegedly incapacitated person of his or her right to request
  for  good  cause  that  the  court  records be sealed and that a person,
  persons, or the general public be excluded from the hearing.
