Have you been asked about guns by your doctor?Submitted by Ben S. on Tue, 09/10/2013 - 15:46
I don't visit doctors much (it's been around 5 years I think), but a friend said this about their recent visit:
A VERY disturbing visit to the doctor yesterday!!! I filled out a pretty standard questionnaire that the nurse proceeded to input into the computer. As she went along verifying the information with me, she began to ask additional questions that were nowhere on the questionnaire that I had completed. Some of the more surprising ones were : "Do you have firearms in your home?" and, "Is there domestic violence in your home?"
Needless to say, I didn't answer these questions and asked a few myself. "What kind of form is this?," "Is this a government form?," "Is this tied to Obamacare?" The nurse verified that it was indeed a government form and they are required to ask these questions...pretty scary!!!
I know this kind of stuff being proposed a few months ago, but hadn't heard until now that it has been implemented.
Anyone else get questions like this from a doctor?
