(1) the name, age, and residence of the injured person;
(2) the date and cause of the injury;
(3) the initial diagnosis; and
(4) other information required by the commissioner.
The furnishing of information required by the commissioner shall not subject any person or facility required to report to any action for damages or other relief, provided that the person or facility is acting in good faith.
