  Today, I spent the first day of the new year helping out at an old folks home. I was assigned to watch over a group which includes the delightful Earnie; an 83 year old delusional man who sees absolutely no problem with showing off "what the good lord gave him" every chance he gets. FML

lol I love demented old people. I was at a nursing home to visit my grandfather and an old lady grabbed me by the arm and whispered 'the code is YA2EK2' in my ear. I then whispered back 'gotcha. I'll call in gamma squad while you distract the general' and she said 'ok' and told me good luck. xDDDDD

it's called HIPPA violation! you put a patients name on a website! just FYI and get over it. I work in a hospital and see it all the time. it's pretty interesting what patients will do. live a little

A first name for a patient in an "old folks home" in the state of California is not a HIPPA violation. OP did not give a last name, a facility name, or even a town name. It's not even remotely specific enough to violate patient rights nor does it provide any protected health information.

First of all, it's HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act), not HIPPA. It's not a fucking hippopotamus.

Second, this could be construed as a HIPAA violation since the spelling of the man's name (assuming it's the correct spelling) is unusual and OP included his age, part of his medical history (dementia), and state of residence. This could theoretically make it much easier to figure out who he is.

I have no idea WHY anyone would want to look him up just to see old Earnie's junk, but that may just be my bias.

Thank you Doc. I seriously hate when people misspell HIPAA for some odd reason. Hopefully this I a fake name, since even volunteers must go through privacy classes. Eh.


A HIPAA violation occurs when more than one patient identifier is exposed. Technically, since the name of the patient and his age are listed, it IS a violation. One could argue, however, that the lack of a last name means this is NOT a violation.

Let's cross our fingers and hope the OP's employer or one of Earnie's family members do not frequent this site.

Hooked on Phonics ain't working for this fucker. Just a little advice, kid, don't talk about blowjobs and receiving them when you're still a 12/13 year old VIRGIN. I guess what I'm trying to say in typical elaborate fashion is go run yourself through with a fucking scythe.

Just for fun, I'm going to run this through my Idiot-English translation engine to see what comes out.

"This man just wants a better job! My boyfriend will give him one, and he'll stay friendly. And when we're done with him, he could come back to my house and give me a Nintendo! Assuming our grill flares of course!"

Wow. I think we were all being a little harsh on Gab there. It turns out his message wasn't obscene at all. I'm glad we were able to work this out amicably.
