I got a needle stick injury at work (Im a healthcare worker) and my family doctor filled out a lab requisition for baseline bloodwork to be done. One of the tests is HIV.
I went to an external lab to get it done because my family MD office is closed. It’s a typical diagnostics lab. In the waiting area there are 5 other people sitting down.
I go to the secretary and hand her the req forms. She takes them, checks me in, and I sit down.
After 10 minutes she calls me back calling out my first name and says, “Ma’am there’s an issue with the HIV test form.”
EVERYBODY in the waiting area heard and gave me looks. I go up to her, very angry, I told her you cannot just announce people’s personal health information like that.
She says, “Oh its ok, you are getting tested just because of a workplace injury.” I told her that’s fine, but other people don’t know that. What if I had to get tested for HIV for a more personal reason? What if somebody who knew me was in the waiting area and heard I was getting tested?
She apologized but I told her I will be calling her manager and informing them of the incident. She rolled her eyes and said “Go ahead.” in a mocking tone.
I told my husband what happened and he said maybe I should cut her some slack. But I told him, revealing personal health information is a huge violation. Its something that was drilled into me as a healthcare worker. I am appalled that the secretary was so blasé about it. I don’t care if she gets reprimanded or loses her job, this is not something to mess around with.

Supporters of abortion rights fear that former President Donald Trump’s reshaping of the courts through appointments of conservative judges — including the confirmation of three new conservative Supreme Court justices — puts the future of Roe v. Wade in danger. Now that Supreme Court is likely to further restrict laws, can Biden muster sufficient support to moot a supreme court decision that further restrict a woman's right to chose?
