Because of HIPPA regulations I cannot reveal any information that may relate to his/her identity.
Don't you mean Hipaa regulations?

We have had a MILLION threads just like yours
Unless you post the predictions, I'm afraid you have wasted your time and our time.
What is this thread going to accomplish for you? Someone to talk to?
If you shared the prediction we could understand what your worries are.
If your shared your prediction, and it happens, that would be all the proof we need.
If you share it, you will appear less selfish, because if something big is going to happen, then we all need to know about it, even if we can't stop it.
Are you being selfish?
Was this thread a waste of time?
I think that's up to you.
I also nearly always type/write the Joint Commission abbreviation as JCHAO rather than JCAHO. Apologies. Be glad you don't have to read my charts. My SOAP notes always need an editor.
The SOAP note (an acronym for subjective, objective, assessment, and plan) is a method of documentation employed by doctors and other health care providers to write out notes in a patient's chart, along with other common formats, such as the admission note. Documenting patient encounters in the medical record is an integral part of practice workflow starting with patient appointment scheduling, to writing out notes, to medical billing. Prehospital care providers such as EMTs may use the same format to communicate patient information to Emergency department clinicians.
The Joint Commission is a private sector United States-based non-profit organization. It is the best known of a number of active healthcare accreditation groups in the USA (see later).
The declared mission of this private organization is "To continuously improve the safety and quality of care provided to the public through the provision of health care accreditation and related services that support performance improvement in health care organizations.".
