I enjoy hotel doctoring over the holidays. Staff love that I’m available, guests are grateful, traffic is light.
At 2 a.m. on December 24, a lady in North Hollywood reported that her husband was suffering diarrhea. She added that he had fainted during the last several episodes. I had never heard of that before; it seemed like a risky housecall, so I told her we needed to call the paramedics. Sure enough, the paramedics took him to the hospital for a day of rehydration.
