When The Sick Patient Is a Celebrity (Video)

It's always shocking when a celebrity is hospitalized. We see them as larger-than-life figures, and it's hard to imagine them being vulnerable to the same illnesses and injuries that we are. But the truth is that celebrities are just like us, and they sometimes get sick or have accidents just like the rest of us. In recent years, we've seen several celebrities hospitalized for serious conditions.


Lady Gaga, for example, was hospitalized in 2017 with a severe case of pain after revealing that she lives with fibromyalgia. Justin Bieber was also hospitalized in 2013 for breathing difficulties. More recently, Selena Gomez underwent a kidney transplant due to complications from lupus.


Fortunately, they all made full recoveries, but their hospital stays were a stark reminder that even celebrities are susceptible to illness and injury.


The unit secretary's responsibility when the patient is a celebrity is to ensure that the patient receives the same level of care and privacy as any other patient. This means keeping confidential information about the patient's condition and treatment private and ensuring that the celebrity patient is not disturbed by fans or the media.


In addition, you should be prepared to deal with any special requests that the celebrity patient may have, to ensure their comfort and safety. By following these guidelines, the unit secretary can help to ensure that all patients, regardless of their fame or popularity, receive the best possible care.

The rapper DMX had a heart attack after suffering a drug overdose. Some reports say that he is in critical condition on life support, some say he is breathing independently, and some are saying that he is brain dead. 

In the video above, I will tell you what I would see as a Unit Secretary when a person who suffered a heart attack arrived on the unit.

Whether it's a local celebrity or an international superstar, they still need to be treated like everyone else if they have a medical emergency. 

With their information at our fingertips, we need to remember the HIPAA law and patients' privacy.
