Hospital Handles Heat Related Illnesses

Posted by wlpo on July 16, 2010

With the extreme heat this week, hopefully you took the usual precautions to avoid health issues.

Gene Vogelsang with Illinois Valley Community Hospital says they had two people brought into the emergency room the past couple days because of the heat.  On Wednesday, a teenager out running came to the hospital for heat exhaustion.  The teen was given fluids and sent home.

Yesterday, a man working outside came to IVCH complaining of dizziness.  He was also treated and released.
