    Points

  1. I suffer from anxiety/depression, ptsd from rape, and had a major depressive episode when I was pregnant. These have never come in conflict with my practice. Caring for others, fortunately, gets me out of my own head and I've never experienced panic attacks at work. I also had a script from a previous doc for PRN ativan which I used sparingly. When I went to a new doctor a while back and in a different town and requested that I resume my regimen of prozac and PRN ativan, the med student drug tested me then put in the note that I had taken the medication from a friend a day before which is not what I had told him. I had said that my partner recognized the intensity of my panic attack and suggested I take my med. So now I have that following me around. All of it looks like a mess on paper that I really don't want to be judged by.

    Nurses with PTSD

    I have anxiety and PTSD from childhood abuse and a rape in adulthood. I also work med-surg. There have been a few times where I felt the intensity of the shift start to trigger me but every time I was able to keep it under control. I think the culture of the place you work will make or break any stress that comes with the territory. The support of your coworkers and management mean everything! Sounds to me from what you said that this place isn't very supportive and there might be a lack of work ethic too. Don't get me wrong, med-surg is tough and might not be the right place for you but, from my own experience, having a solid team around you can make it doable.
  3. Hey everyone! I posted this to the HIPAA thread but I thought I might get some answers here too... So here it goes. So I just moved and am trying to find a new doctor. I have been very hesitant to see anyone yet because I'm paranoid about what's in my medical record maybe someday being seen by a prospective employer. I know it's a HIPAA violation for prospective employers to look at that stuff but I was wondering if anyone knew of this every happening anyway. Can administrative people get away with looking at anyone's medical record? I obviously am clueless as to how HIPAA is policed. Thanks everyone!
