I guess this is the thing to do in order to protect myself, HIPAA and all. So here it is. I will never use an actual patient name. If I use an age in my story, it will not be exact. I may change the sex of a patient. Locations may not be entirely accurate. Stories may have occured 10 minutes ago or 10 years ago. I may embellish parts of the conversation. I may omit some as well. The stories are mainly to share in the experience that we have come to know as retail pharmacy. Basically, if you think that I'm talking about you, I'm not. I've had the same experience with at least a dozen other patients over the years.
