Baby Got Back

A whole new category of PHI---

Fatter rear ends are causing many drug injections to miss their mark, requiring longer needles to reach buttock muscle, researchers said Monday.
Standard-sized needles failed to reach the buttock muscle in 23 out of 25 women whose rears were examined after what was supposed to be an intramuscular injection of a drug.

Next time someone asks you why they need to keep health information confidential, just remind them of how easy it would be to figure out what the king-size needles are for.
