I have a gun vault bolted to the floor under the driver seat of my blazer. It is quite secure. And you would not notice it unless you knew it was there.

After reading previous post I would like to clarify 2 things that could be missinterpreted. First, Im not embarassed to carry a gun. What I meant is that the feeling of people knowing that I carry (when I do not want them to know), is simmillar to the feeling of being embarassed. Does that make sense? Second It is not that my job is not important to me. It is just that I dont think I will loose my job because the thruth is nobody can search me at work (at least not legally) but it can certainly cause me a lot of headaches.

In my state it is illegal to even have a weapon in your car at the hospital. If your states laws are similar consider it as a government building and leave everything at home before you are arrested, fired and lose your right to carry.
Besides you surround yourself with the sick and dying as well as super bugs and nasty chemicals on a daily basis. If your safety is a concern stay the hell out of the hospital.

Ok, I understand what you mean.
In that case buy a smaller gun if you are sure that you want to carry. I carry a Glock 19 which is identical is size, they are not compact, regardless of what the manufacturer says. A pocket pistol in a pocket holster will be much easier to conceal.

Sadly, the way we are leaving there is no such thing as a safe place. What Im already working on is moving to another hospital. I already work in 2 EDs at a 50/50 proportion (i mean the same amount of hours in each). The plan is to move completely to the nicer one within next 2 months!

By any chance do you know another ER Doc there in PR with the first name Jorge? If so, tell the "Polite Psycho" I said Hola!- and he would be a good person to talk with.

I ran the police dept for a hospital with a busy ER/ Trauma Center, so I understand where you are coming from- BUT- their house, their rules. I WOULD see if there is a way that I could STORE my sidearm in the hospital (with security staff?) If you are in violation of house rules, and are terminated, that will go in your personnel records.

While it is easier to get a job when you are a physician than if you are a welder, it is NOT easier to get a job when you are telling prospective employers that you were fired for REPEATEDLY violating workplace rules on guns.

Only option I can think of just brainstorming; do you have a good rapport with your boss? Do you have lockers at the hospital? Maybe you could sit down with him and tell him you carry out of fear for your safety and ask if it is OK to bring your gun to work but leave it locked in a locker. At least then you have it on your way to and from work and in and out of the building.
Not sure of the laws where you're at, but in wa, you can carry in a hospital ONLY with written permission from the head administrator of the building. I recommend familiarizing yourself with the laws of your area, including federal, and see what loop holes are there, or leave it at home and pray for the best.
