Sooo...I want to start a vet school blog, methinks. Mostly as a way to keep my family and friends apprised of my goings on when I'm at vet school. Are there any privacy laws I need to be aware of? I know that I should keep things vague and not use identifying details of the owners. But can I talk about the pets (in specific terms)? If I'm not talking about human patients--do I need to worry about HIPPA? Also, can I talk about experiences/patients I saw as a tech? Or would that cause me to be liable with the hospital (again, being as vague as possible, no identifying details, changing breeds, no doctors' names, etc.)? Basically, what I am asking is can I say: saw a puppy vomiting one time. We thought is was parvo, but it was really an awful case of roundworms. Some breeders can be so stupid. (Or something to that effect). Thanks!
