I respect and maintain all HIPAA standards. The details discussed here have been changed to protect patients, coworkers, and myself. The stories told are to emphasize the situation, not the patients. They are anecdotal. Patient details, timelines, and locations are changed dramatically and any ability to recognize an individual is completely coincidental. The situations and events discussed here are my own experiences and memories. I am not speaking on behalf of or representing my employer or any professional nursing organizations in any discussion.
