I'm pretty sure he can't sue anyway. maybe if op used his real name, but they didn't.

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.

hippocratic oath is universal laws for docs that might include confidentiality. im not sure im not a doc. i think HIPPA and the medical codes in other countries must stem from that.

no its not its an ethics code but it is the basic of the things that are laws.

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.

What ever happened to doctor patient confidentiality?

#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.

if HIPPA is to do with the hippocratic oath then the law of confidentiality is a universal one.

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.

all doctors have to take that oath. its is the doctors code of ethics. the only docs that wont are witch doctors. what i meant by a universal law is one that is a law in every country which i think this is. also since Croatia is an EU country they WILL have both the hippocratic oath and doctor patient confidentiality.

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.

then HIPPA will not apply in Croatia but confidentiality clauses do.

you must be extremely perceptive to be able to read through the lines of that post so deeply that you figured out who the patient was...
