To start working in the hospital, I had to hurdle the barrage of paperwork and bureaucracy that included HIPAA training. I abide by HIPAA regulations of patient privacy at all times.I do not use real full names, I may omit certain information that could possibly identify a patient OR provider, and I only discuss case specifics for teaching value/emotional import.
Please note that if I ever discuss treatment, it is for informational purposes ONLY and is not meant to be acted upon. Any medical action you decide upon should be made with a licensed, trained physician.
