We all do things due to motives. Some times the motives are selfish. Some times the motives are Ethical. Some times they are dictated by Law. Some times we do things due to hate and some times we do not even know why we do the things that we do.
It is a fair question to ask and on this page I will try to tell you why.
The first reason why?Is that I knew the hospital was being investigated and in court for Fraud against the coffers of the State of Florida. I work pretty hard and as an activist I'm very much aware that the average worker does his labor until the 20th of May in order to pay for taxes and then after that what ever he/she makes is for their family. Did you know that.? The National Tax watch group puts out a news report about it every year.! Tax liberation day it is called.!!
The second reason why?Is that I have a title amongst many behind my name R.N. ( not silly is not for REAL NUT ) It stands for Registered Nurse that means that I care deeply enough about my fellow human beings to do something about it. With that title comes certain responsibilities. I have a certain CODE OF ETHICS that guide my actions while I'm working as a Nurse and sometimes the same as a Police officer " the shields " as I call them people expect for me to be on duty 24 hours a day. But in reality I can not because there are laws that tell me that I can not do the job of nursing longer than 12 or at most 16 hours straight. The reason for that is that as a human being it is understood that we tire and that judgment falls after that. Human lives are at stake and it is good to be able to rest. Any way's. I'm bound by certain laws that have been written and are called in Florida the Nurse Practice Act. Or otherwise called Florida Statues Chapter 464 and or FS-455.
I bought a computer on a second hand shop. I was not on duty at the time. I was just your average guy doing his thing. I enjoy the " putters" and as a philanthropic action buy old ones fix them and give it to the church and its members or families that otherwise could not afford one for their kids. I want those that can not to be able to do. Because at one time I could not and some one helped me. Their help was all that I needed to get ahead and I did. I could never forget that so I do it automatically for others when ever I can in what ever way I can. But any ways let's go on.
Once I got the computer going there was nothing to it really just booting it with a floppy disk. Other wise it was just fine. So I stated looking and saw that this computer had lots of information on it. It had about 20 Megabytes worth of information. On closer inspection I saw that it contained memos, incident reports policy and procedures etc of a Hospital a local Hospital none the less this hospital is the one that was being investigated and tried for fraud to the tune of Millions via Medicaid and Medicare. Not only did it had that kind of information but it contained private patient information, Names addresses, phone numbers etc. . I was shocked. I was shocked because this computer had no encryption for the data and not even a password. Any one any, whereas could of looked in it and see the most private of patient information that it contained. I mean even the cleaning lady at nights would have been able to turn it on and see what she was not supposed to if she or /he wanted . I did not look further cause it was none of my business and pondered what to do.
Well you know all that that every one is taught. If you see a crime it is your duty to report it. I knew that an " alleged criminal " against " the people " was being tried in court. If I destroyed the information I would be aiding and abetting " a criminal " that was out of the question. Now that is just being a regular " Joe Schmuchkately " or average citizen. Strike one for the hospital.
Well I'm a Nurse also and I have worked psychiatric crisis centers and hospital's. I know how very important it is not to disclose patient information and that it could harm patients very much if the information contained there was to fall on the hands of unscrupulous persons. The fact that the computer had no passwords or encryption and my experience with computers telling me how easy it is to do so really disappointed me. Strike number two for the hospital.
The fact that I bought the computer at a second hand shopand any one could of have bout it with all the information on it when I know how easy it is to erase a hard drive was the last straw. Strike number three for the hospital.
I did it because, here was an" alleged thief" that did not care about his victims and was so stupid as to leave the evidence behind. I did it because all the laws above Civic and ethical said that I had to do it.
There have been allegations and innuendoes that I might of done it for other reasons and the ones that have fueled that fire has been the hospital the hospital was aided what in my opinion was and is an unscrupulous journalist that asked me an If question and then wrote an article saying that I was going to sell the computer for profit when I had already made every effort to turn it in to the proper authorities without compensation. Heck if a few millions was to be recuperated I could of made more than what was reported as a just reward given and offered by the US Gov. in order to encourage " whistle blowing ".
The reward was not my reason as stated before it was strike one, strike two and strike three you are out.
Any other explanations etc can be found else where in this site. This specific page was created in order to put all the assholes that have accused me of other wise in the proper perspective and for them to see that not only I'm justified in what I did but I'm right. Yes there are and will be people that will nit-pick at every word etc etc. This are the basic guidelines that I used. Some might be a tad off but so many are right on the money that adding the right on the money ones and the close enough to ones. Well I did what I though I had to do.
Please accept my excuse for the only piece of profanity that you will find in this whole web site but it just had to be told.
Please remember that I did request animosity for me and the patients. However when faced with the very first " proper " authorityI did not hide behind: The freedom of the press and confidentiality of news sources. I identified my self proper name . address phone # RN license#, and even with my beeper number, talk about cooperating and taking responsibility for my actions.
I guess that if I had then the news reporters and the state would of gone around in circles wasting my good taxpayers money and the money of the news stations for a long time Huhh! It would also solved the problemof testing the metal of those " journalists " that make their claims. But we now know where they stand right!!
After we explore the why I did it.Please explore the punishments that were given or the charges that were brought against me who was not the " owner " ( legally means the originator or one in charge of the information ). Jose .1 .2 3 And then the charges that were made against the " flesh of my flesh " = Judy my wife whom had no involvement what so ever except by marriage, .Pay close attention feminists and nurse teams composed of Husband and Wife's ..1 ..2 ..3 I will not repeat the who helped Judy part cause besides me the only help that she got was the one that I got. Zilch
