    HIPPA is the new government enforced confidentiality rules that protect patient rights. Lots of stuff but what we should have been doing any way. More paper work though.

    I once took care of "George Bush." No, the elderly gent wasn't the senior or the junior; just shared the famous name.

    I took care of a famous woman. The day she died, Jay Leno made a joke about it on the Tonight Show, and mentioned the name of the city where our facility was, and that she had died there.
    This woman worked with and had potentially damaging knowledge involving very powerful polititans, especially one in particular. There have been quite a few books and articles written speculating about what she knew and the role she played in one particular polititan's activities. The polititan is deceased also.

    There was even an episode on 20/20 about her and what she knew, the week after she died. There was lots of stuff on "A Current Affair" and all the gossip type TV shows about her and the famous polititan she worked with.

    She was very ill, so hardly spoke when she was on our unit, but she was nice.

    I used to know a nurse who took care of Klaus Von Bulow's comatose wife, Daisy.

    Nope. Hogan's definition sounds better for Hippa (a female hippo). HIPAA is what you are describing.
