As much as it may frustrate me at times, I deeply appreciate my job, my co-workers, and my employers, past and present. Every place and person is imperfect and has room for growth. I try to be charitable and objective in any commentary, so please forgive me if I am excessively negative or cruel in my writings. That was never my intention.
Any discussion of patients is HIPAA compliant with names and other identifiers removed to protect their privacy. I am thankful that patients trust me with their innermost secrets at some of the most difficult times in their lives. I do not take my patients’ right to privacy lightly. Any names presented on the blog are fictional. (To be honest, I forget most of them after a week, though a select few have stuck with me). At my digression, some of the details of patients’ medical history and presenting illness have modified or excluded to further protect their privacy.
This is my personal blog, so my views do not necessarily reflect those of my employer, family, and friends.
I am very flattered when anyone shares my writing in whatever capacity, but please remember to not copy, paste, and present it as your own. These writings are my intellectual property, though I will likely never be as intellectually brilliant as the people I quote and discuss.
I am given a small percentage of any products purchased from links from this blog (if purchased within 24 hours at Amazon.com). You can also click here if interested. I otherwise keep this blog ad-free.
Comments are welcomed and encouraged, but please remember to be charitable. If you need to contact me, please do so at firstname.lastname@example.org.
