InRoomMD and Valley Hospital Medical Center Provide Swine Flu Hot Line for Las Vegas Travelers

Nations largest network of travel healthcare providers teams with Valley Hospital Medical Center to establish 24 hot line for Las Vegas guests.

Las Vegas, NV, November 04, 2009 --( To ease the concern of weary travelers surrounding the fear of the H1N1 virus (swine flu), InRoomMD, North America's largest network of travel healthcare providers, has established a 24-hour medical hotline staffed by board-certified physicians that will be available to hotel guests and concierge staff. The hotline will serve three purposes:

Provide up-to-date medical information regarding the upcoming flu season, precautionary steps to take to avoid infection, and steps to take to avoid spreading the infection if you have it.

If a traveler is acutely ill, they can be seen by an InRoomMD doctor in the convenience of their place of lodging.

If, after speaking to an InRoomMD physician, the guest's condition is considered severe enough, the guest can be triaged to Valley Hospital Emergency Room's Fast Track for more extensive evaluation.

The H1N1 pandemic may present a variety of cases some of which may be mild while others may be more severe. InRoomMD physicians will be available 24/7 to answer questions, recommend treatment, and assist guests calling into the hot line. Guests staying in Las Vegas areas hotels can contact the hotline at 866-909-7666.

"Many travelers are confused about swine flu symptoms. It is bad enough to deal with when you are at home, but when traveling can be unbearable. Our H1N1 Hot Line will allow our members to speak directly with a doctor and determine the best course of action," says Dr. Cary Logan, Medical Director for InRoomMD.

“We’ve seen a wide range of H1N1 cases, from mild to severe,” said Gregory E. Boyer, CEO/Managing Director of Valley Hospital Medical Center in Las Vegas. “We’re experienced in caring for patients who may be affected more severely by this flu based on a chronic illness, pregnancy, or other condition.”
