SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Im filling out the required paperwork for internship (VA medical center) and there's one form that's really bothering me. It's a medical history form, and no explanation is given as to why this information is needed, or what it will be used for. And it contains a long list of VERY personal medical conditions you may have experienced, many of which don't seem to be at all relevant to the workplace. Examples: painful urination, hernia, suicide plans, nervous trouble of any sort, eating disorder, car sickness, STDs, used tobacco, learning disability, and "have you ever been treated for a mental condition?". Now, I already filled out a form listing conditions that are relevant to the workplace, like communicable diseases, immunixations, etc. I get that for the safety of the workplace, they do need to have some medical information about me. But this other form is really bugging me. Some of the conditions I listed apply to me, and some of them don't, but I don't think the VA is entitled to have very personal information about my mental and behavioral health history. And it's not even l Ike I'm mailing it directly to HR when I finish it - I was instructed to send it to my new department secretary. I know there's no way around filling out this form. But in your honest opinions, how truthful would you be if you were I my shoes? Am I being over sensitive about this? Should I just fill it out and forget about it? How likely is it that it even matters, or that anyone will ever access it?
