FOOD POISONING WHILE

ON A BUSINESS TRIP

 

BRAD

 

INCOMING SITUATION

 

“I’m in Sao Paulo on a business trip, it’s the middle of the night. I don’t speak the language, and I’m sick as a dog. Please help.” 

PRIVATE HEALTH MANAGEMENT ACTIONS & IMPACT

  • Our clinician spoke to Brad and determined he was most likely dehydrated from food poisoning and needed intravenous hydration as quickly as possible

  • We arranged a car and driver and translator within 30 minutes and Brad was escorted to the best emergency facility in Sao Paulo

  • We had already electronically dispatched his medical records and briefed the supervising physician on Brad’s condition, which expedited his treatment

  • IV fluids and nausea-reduction medication were administered

RESULTS

 

By mid-afternoon Brad was back on schedule, meeting with business colleagues who had flown in that morning and preparing for a key dinner meeting
