Don't Lose Half Your Tongue
« on: February 24, 2014, 09:37:37 AM »
My patient just got back from having half his tongue removed and 6 weeks of intense radiation therapy due to squamous cell carcinoma. Results are not so pretty.

PSA: Don't smoke

Doubtful, no identifying info of the patient, plus little identifying info on the doc = no problemo.

Maybe, but not in regards to this :)
You can do a quick google search for squamous cell carcinoma of the tongue

Still, I don't think my patient would want his picture posted online. The he'll never know" argument doesn't sit well with me when it comes to my patients. Besides, there are more gruesome pictures on google if you want.

I'm against the lawyers whenever possible  ;D

I agree that you should not post it, I was arguing that you had not previously violated HIPPA.

Me too.  I became a lawyer so that I can oppose other lawyers every day. You only get to do so once in a while.
