But there is a time and place for everything and when I or a loved one is in need of medical care is not necessarily the best time for me to try to educate some medical professional about RKBA, much less to want to see said medical professional at all nervous as he attempts to provide treatment. And, not every individual request to disarm is motivated entirely by phobia or anti-RKBA politics. Sometimes doctors have to inflict pain. Sometimes patients react poorly to anesthesia, fainting, or other treatments. In many cases it may well be impossible fora patient to maintain proper control of his firearm and there is no particular reason that hospital staff should be experts in doing so for the patient.

Just food for thought.

Hey Charles -- long time no see or speak.

As with all things, discretion is the better part of valor.

I broke my ankle slipping on my basement stairs last November. I did not have a gun on me (had just changed from Sunday clothes into casual house pants) when it happened so when I went to the ER I was sans gun. But on all my follow-ups at the surgeon's office, and now at my PT (but not when I went to Riverton hospital for outpatient surgery on it), I carry, whatever sign they may have on the door. It is concealed and stays that way. Even when I am on the exercise bike or doing the various stretches or exercises at the PT.

My wife is a nurse for IHC. Previously at Alta View and now at IMC. Whenever I go see her at work, I carry normally. Concealed. (Food for thought: They also have all these signs about turning off the cellphones and what not in the hospital -- yet every doctor and nurse in the place has a cellphone that is on and uses it -- when my son was being born by C-Section the doctors cellphone rang and he had a nurse grab it and go out in the hall to answer it! [and yes, I think I carried when my kids were born, though I honestly cannot remember])

I have OCed in orem IHC and as well in the provo InstaCare with no reactions. IMO that whole hospital can shove it. ALMOST EVERY time I have to go there I want to set a puppy on fire and kick it into some kind of flammable liquid. :evil:
People say I should not carry because it's not the Wild West. I say I carry because its much worse. Only 3 people died at the at the O.K. Corral and its a part of our nations history. If 3 people died in a 30 sec shootout today It might not make the news.

I work for a hospital chain that I will not name here. They have an 'internal' code to call that is supposed to be for an "active shooter" situation. At the various trainings they have most turn into "Man With a Gun" things instead of Active Shooter--- so be careful. Since I still work for them and haven't retired yet (maybe in about 6 years) I will not say weather I 'carry' while on the property or not.

Personally, should I see someone with a properly holstered firearm at the location in which I work my response may be limited to SHAKING THEIR HAND!!!!

I have a local doctor in Spanish Fork that does not even bat an eye about the whole thing. So all I need to do is never go to a hospital ever again.

last time I went to the doctors.... about a month ago, I was carrying. They went to have me take my shirt off so they could do an EKG, and I warned them ahead of time by just saying "ok but just so you know, I have a permit and have my firearm with me today, so dont freak when I take my [auto-filtered] off". Doctor didnt even bat an eye was just like "ok no problem".

CCW employees at IHC don't have problem as long they are discreet and the permit its valid, their policy about guns is a little beat shady but anybody without a ccw assuming they find out, and they call the cops. Have a ccw and you might visit Human resources and who knows the aftermath
security personnel carry spray and taser, they cannot face in confrontation with BG armed messing around the premises
there is a duty officer in the ER waiting area, some of the areas are access restricted even to security personnel winch would be a big matter in case if a BG "an outsider or mad ex-employee mess around."
code silver is the code for matters like this, they encourage to take some safety steps. Most of the time high profile patients are escort by two LEOS.
Parking lots I think have they have the most high risk, cars stolen, chances of being assault and a false sense of security inside the buildings reign.
Soon We will have a meeting regarding code silver, I think they cannot do anything about the right to self defense for those ccw employees who decide to protect themselves, they known this, but is like don't ask don't tell policy

For what it is worth... I HAVE READ THE ACTUAL POLICY! ANY EMPLOYEE CAUGHT CARRYING ARMS/AMMUNITION OF ANY KIND WILL BE CONSIDERED TO HAVE COMMITTED A SERIOUS POLICY VIOLATION AND MAY BE TERMINATED EVEN IF IT IS A FIRST OFFENCE!

Now, I recognize that the Doctors are in a different arena here that mere Nurses, security personel, Resp. therapist, ect as the doctor isn't actually an employee so they can't be fired but the rest can be AND HAVE BEEN!

Unless they have changed their stance in the last few weeks, EVEN LEO's who also work as sercurity ARE PROHIBITED FROM CARRYING WHILE ON INTERMOUNTAIN's time clock!
