    I burn mine. BTW- do you know that when you change your address the USPS sells your address, and sends it all over to clearinghouses? I was wondering how people found me, got mail I had not received for years- so I sent a change of address card on a hunch- the crap mail came in WAVES in about two weeks.

    So next time I move, I'm going to put a 'vaction hold' on my mail, not a change of address, then move, and leave it there. By then anything I need will come via email, so it can pile up somewhere else.

    Funny. The junk mail follows you, but the mail you wanted to get, the mail you filled out the change of address form for in the first place, never seems to. And the USPS is wondering why people prefer UPS.

    You can directly inform your 'real' mail people of your new address, and forego a change of address card, but the 'real' mail people also sell out your new address. It's an easy test to take on, misspell your name, and send in for a free magazine trial. See how much crap flows to your mailbox within ten days, if you are curious.

    I work for a third party company that offers/provides on site clinics to employers (i.e. banks, manufacturing, etc.). So in a sense, I am not an employee of the client and don't report to them. The clinic is staffed by one provider and one RN/LPN/MA depending on the facility and it is an okay job. I enjoy the autonomy of running the clinic (within company guidelines of course) by myself and the provider, the drama free environment (it's just me and the provider), and getting to know the patients. On the downside, it is a clinic job so it can get boring because you do the same thing over and over again, the paperwork is all done by me, and of course "loss" of clinical skills (i.e. foley, IVs, etc). Pros and cons but thankful for a job nonetheless.

    Oh and in terms of privacy, it is really weird having CEOs being in the clinic and then their secretaries bugging them about their appointments. I try to my best to reiterate that they are still my patients and need their privacy but I suppose when you are the important mucky muck higher up, there is no escaping this....esp. when your office is just down the hall. Personally, even if it's a third party, I prefer going to my own provider that is outside of where I work. But that's just me - I don't want to see my boss in the waiting room when I feel like crap.

    My employer offers onsite healthcare as well. I can see the convenience factor for people who have bankers' hours and for whom taking a whole day or half a day for doctors' appts can be difficult at best. But personally, it is too much like crapping where I eat. I know in theory what goes on in the doctor's office stays there, but knowing the same place I work has access to all my personal medical stuff.....no thanks. It might not be rational, but I get the heebie jeebies.
    Exactly what I said to my husband as we were discussing this. He thinks in the day and age of HIPAA, nobody would dare. I'm not so idealistic.
