"The following is a work of fiction. Any relations to any persons, living or dead; is purely coincidental".

    How about "Name, age and other information have been altered to protect the person's identity and privacy".

    So, to give you an example:

    "I took care of a pt. last week who came in complaining of generalized fatigue. Pt. c/o SoB but had a known Hx of asthma and chronic bronchitis. Pt. had no other complaints other than loss of appetite "I don't feel like eating". No n/v/d reported. An EKG was performed and it was borderline with non-specific ST changes. However, the labworked revealed a troponin of 3.19!! I ended up shipping the patient to the cath lab pronto!"

    If the above example "violates" HIPAA - then the vast majority of nursing and medical schools in the country are in trouble...

    IMHO - people make HIPAA out to be some kinda of complicated monster, when it is actually not the case in reality.

    cheers,
