I have a question. I want to be able to write client stories, especially as I am now on my 2 weeks of a Level I fieldwork in physical dysfunction at a local rehabilitation hospital. I can't stand writing vague stories, and nobody wants to read a story about a stick figure. But I'm not sure how far I need to take HIPAA. Am I writing a client story so that a normal person can't recognize the client (hypothetical Level 3), or am I writing a client story so that that client's therapists or family couldn't recognize the client (Level 2), or am I writing it so that the actual client couldn't recognize his or her self (Level I)? I have to get progressively vaguer as I go from Level 3 to Level 1, so I would love to know what level I have to write at. I'm unfortunately guessing it's Level 1. I might just have to stick with making up fictional patient stories and only keeping my reflections on the story the same. Anybody familiar enough with HIPAA to answer this question? I did take an online course on HIPAA through my school, but it doesn't exactly touch on how thoroughly it would affect blogging. Ooh the gray areas of the online world!
