If he even tried to sue he would have to get the foot of every FML commenter removed from his rectum. We stand up for each other!

65- he did not technically break confidentiality because he did not use a name or any other identifying piece of information

If the guy doesn't want it known that he had a bottle up his ass, why would he take it to court where a good number of people would find out?

This doctor didn't use the patients name or any other identifying information...so, no, the patient can't sue...well...I suppose he could TRY to sue...but since the doctor used no identifying information...prove it's him that the doctor is talking about!

The doctor didn't use any identifying information. If you can tell me who out of the 4 Billion people on the planet it was (I know there are 8-9 Billion, but only half are male) ill be really impressed. I work in the medical field in the US, and talk about stuff all the time. As people know who I am and where I work, it would be easier to ID the patient. But I'm fine as I don't use a name or room number.

DocBastard talks about his patients all the time on his blog, it's safe because he does not use any real names. This post could easily be thrown out in any court.

This post has less information than a newspaper article about the latest shooting in the nearest major city. The only thing violated here is the patients arse, which he did himself. And my mental imaging device for having pictured this.

65, there was no confidentiality being broken. OP did not use any personal information of the patients name. As long as OP kept the privacy of the patient to himself, the patient would lose in a lawsuit. Look at DocBastard's blog and you might learn something.

Gotta love HIPPA. Makes you able to post all kinds of interesting stories, as long as there is no personally identifiable info.

OP is also from Croatia, so HIPAA doesn't apply. (Not sure what Croatia's patient privacy laws are.)

@82 HIPAA is the source of patient privacy lawsuits in the US. The Hippocratic Oath by itself is not legally actionable.

Perdix is confused, that's a completely unrelated glass bottle up a rectum... You're good Doc

Haha, DocBastard, I immediately checked the username because I suspected it might be you. People, if you are going to put things in your rectum, make sure they are things like butt plugs with a nice FLARED BASE. Then you can't lose it up there. For the love of Pete don't put glass things up there.

#15, also it's a US law, so Croatian doctors are not bound by it. As far as we know, the OP could post the patient's picture and e-mail address.

There is not a single law that is universal. Every country has its own laws and regulations for everything including medical treatment. There are countries where most doctors probably haven't even heard of the Hippocratic oath.

HIPAA is the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act. It is a US law. The Hippocratic Oath is of Greek origin and is used for doctors around the world. Two different things.

We remove items from mens rectums at least twice a week in the hospital. Every man says they accidentally sat on it while naked.

Your comment reminds me of an episode in Seinfeld; "every proctologist story ends the same way: it was a million to one shot, doc, million to one".
