HIPAA who?!?

I've thought about blogging for a long time. I hear and see a lot of outrageous things in my line of work that would be a lot of fun to share. But, then, I wondered, would it be a HIPAA violation to share my stories? What if one of my patients stumbled upon my blog and realized my ramblings were about them? Then, I realized most of my patients can't even afford electricity (although, they, of course, are able to afford their cigarettes and acrylic nails), let alone a computer and the internet. And, as long as I keep identifying information out of my stories, it's not a HIPAA violation. So, let the tales begin.
