HIPAA/physical therapy

.....Just to let you know, nothing in this journal's entry is toward anyone in specific, I use it to write my feelings, and about my illnesess,and in hopes it might help someone else as I do. And if you might take an entry wrong and feel that it is about you, I'm sorry but It isn't, it just may seem to coincide with your own life. May God bless you!......


 


Good morning. :o) I hope everyone is feeling as good as they can today. ;o)


The rest od yesterday, I rested up from my little visit from seeing my daughter and grandson. ;o) It's what the doctor ordered! :o) They can always make me feel better! :o)


I called her last night and ivited them over for today. ( big grin) Maybe play in the pool and have some fun here out side! :o) She doesn't have any plans...so they are going to come over! YAY! :o)


This morning, my physical therapist came in and scared me to death! LOL :o) She came back from her vacation early! I was glad to see her. My body really need the deep tissue massage. But, I don't like to go through it. :o)~ It hurt like you no what...but I do feel better. 
She had asked me how my doctor's appointment went on Tuesday. So, I was telling her about it.
I told the about the part when I heard my name called and another lady got up and went in. Well...I just thought her name was Lisa too. No biggie. Right after that, the door opened and they called for another girl. she wasn't there. The nurse had her file in her hand! They were looking for her and checking the front desk at the sign in sheet and still was calling for her. She called her again and the nasked me if I was her. I said no and told her my name. I had been sitting for an hour and a half waiting. I just thought they were busy. Not so! The nurse got my file mixed up with the other girl that she was looking for! She had my file in the room with her! She called me in and told me that she mixed up our files! So...it was my name she called. So, isn't that against the HIPAA? When I told this to my therapist...the look on her face was shock! She can't tell me anything, because she isn't allowed to. So that could explain then why I got one right script, and one script that I was suppose to get, but didn't. I was going to call the office back, but I really don't like this doctor at all. He could use a course in "bed side manners." And his staff has caused me one too many times to go without my meds. after I've called them in. Thankfully the visit was only a check up, but I still don't feel comfortable at all with him. Yes, I am still looking for another gp. But there isn't any around here that are accepting my insurance at the moment. ggrr!


So...that was my morning. And, alittle more indebth of my doctor's appointment.


My pains are still on a good level. :o) Just alittle bit of a shock feeling now...since the massage. But that just goes with all of it! ;o)
It's called life! :o)


I had another good evening last night. :o) Things are moving good. :o)


Well...I need to get off of here to get a few things done. :o) Have a good one! :o)


Gods Blessings to you all! :o)


Lisa

Does your insurance company offer a list of doctors who accept your insurance? Most insurance companies have handbooks with lists of the doctors and addresses in them. I hope you have a good day and enjoy the pool with your grandson. ((((((hugs))))))))

Man oh man. My mom once got the wrong pills. My dad being a dentist we had a PDR book & looked up the pills because they looked different. When I called the pharmacy & explained they asked me to bring them back. God knows what they were!!!!
