Found Poem

At my place of employment, patients are required to fill out a series of forms when they come in for their appointments. To make the days more interesting, I like to read the forms as I staple them together. I put together a poem from one woman's answer to the request "please describe your current symptoms."


right side
stabbing pain

middle
burning

all guts sometimes stabbing
sometimes cramping

always getting worse

Leaked secrets here-
Nevervous system pains- all mine,
My shame is public

I swear, I am totally within the HIPAA privacy rules! No names. I do break HIPAA rules all the time at work though; it's a complicated system.

I break HIPAA at work oft
Difficult system
