Oh, wow. You’re a cop, right? And you can’t see what the problem is here?

We know his name. We have his photo. We know he works in a Canberra hospital. So you’re Joe Smith, Fat Person, and you rock up at hospital for treatment, and you realise this guy is your nurse – a guy who you know thinks it’s ok to hold fat people up for ridicule and objects of disgust. Or you’re Joe Smith, Fat Person, and you’ve just read this post and realised that your nurse has been discussing your case history in a public place.

It’d be like you running a blog where you espoused your views on, say, victims of domestic violence (hopeless losers, why don’t they just leave, probably had it coming, god knows I’d like to smack some of them), and then expected to be able to rock up at the next such case with a straight face.

I give it a week for this guy’s blog to disappear.

Or you are Joe Smith, Fat Bloke, and you wake up to yourself one day and realise everyone else is paying the price for you being disgustingly morbidly obese ( and it is disgusting if you are fat enough to losse stuff in your pork rolls. So you get your fat arse out from behind the keyboard, walk around the block a couple of times adn try to do something about it.

Yes it will hurt, yes it is suckful, yes I have recently lost a bunch of weight through exercise adn good diet. I was never fa enough to have big fat rolls, more of a belly, but I know that is sucks to try and lose the weight. But seriously, if you aren’t going to make the effort, expect to be laughed at.

Who cares? Fat people should be forced to suffer our laughter.

He hasn’t given any personal details of the patients so no confidentially requirements have been broken. Get over yourselves.

I believe it borders on being unethical though.

how? what is unethical about it? its a list of crap (literal and figurative) that he has found in folds of fat… whose confidentiality or privacy is being breached?

How is it unethical?

I see it as he is trying to make obese people aware. The need to clean out their fatrolls. They never know what they’ll find.

+1 to Julia for standing up for pragmatism as opposed to political correctness. But would still not vote for LP.

These days, if you hide from the facts about anything, they will eventually find you. Best to be upfront and acknowledge these, no matter how unpalatable and move on.

Who on RiotACT signed up to prefer ignorance to informed knowledge?

Offbeat, yes. Bad taste, no. Unless…

Not squeamish about truth.

Obviously doctor/patient confidentiality doesn’t extend to nurses.

no-one was named – jog on

ProudTenant 5:20 pm 03 Jul 10

I often leave Juicy Fruit in my fat rolls overnight. Better than the bedpost, where all sorts of creepy crawlies get to sh!t over it. Disgusting.
