Privacy

Since I often write posts inspired by events at the hospital, I try to keep a certain level of anonymity by not including my last name or the name of my training program.  Specific patient encounters I describe are generally a fusion of several instances.  I routinely change patients’ ages and specific medical problems, and I sometimes change the gender in my narrative in order to obscure patients’ identities.  If a specific anecdote highly resembles a specific person, it is purely by chance.

    I also try to keep a certain level of anonymity with my comments. I routinely change my gender, height, weight and identity when making comments.

    Today I am a tall, dark haired woman, curly hair and mother of four offspring and on my way to Lake Powell.

  2. Mom, are you mocking me?
