So, as you probably  have figured out, this blog is my blog. Meaning it has my thoughts, attitudes, and opinions, and does not reflect the thoughts, attitudes, and opinions of the department I work at, the people I work for, or the people I work with.

Any stories I tell involving patients are HIPAA compliant. Details have been changed to maintain patient confidentiality, including (but not limited to) age, sex, date, geography, and time. Some stories are composites. Any similarity between the characters of these stories and descriptions, and any individuals living or dead, is coincidental.

Also, I reserve the right to not publish (or delete) any comments which I find maliciously hurtful, offensive, or derogatory. If you have a difference of opinion, by all means, post it. Discussion is important to learning. All I ask is that you be respectful of others while you do so.
