84. Healthcare privacy act
This is an exaggeration of true events. Although HIPAA does protect your personal information in many ways, the logistics of Healthcare make it nigh impossible to completely be private.
When I got my vasectomy, we had to drop some semen samples afterwards to make double sure we got snipped correctly. Well you have to go from ,erm, production of the sample to testing within 30 minutes. I live 10 minutes away from work, thankfully. I can't imagine how people who live further away do it? Well I can, but I don't want to.
When I got to the line for the lab, the nurse was like... any semen samples??? And 4 of us had to be like... yes. 2 of them I recognized from work.
So it is what is. I don't care that much, but complying with it is a logistical problem more often than not.
