(At least pipe tobacco and cigars don't stink up the area, even if they're no better for you.)

This is why, as a nurse, I take with a grain of salt whatever I read in an electronic record. My doctor's office got EPIC last year and every visit I go I am asked about an allergy I never had but is indelibly on my health record! Ah, progress.......

Kerlyssa and Toni G have seen the joys of electronic records. They should just be glad it doesn't say something like pedophilia or schizophrenia. Because with the internet, EVERYTHING is Forever! And it will be shared, HIPAA be damned!
