A fall on the ice, indigestion, dog bites, colds and flu.
Questions about these or other health concerns can be answered instantly and confidentially through a free phone call to an Intermountain Health Care registered nurse.ASK-A-NURSE, a new community service sponsored by IHC, puts callers in touch with a specially trained registered nurse 24-hours-a-day, seven-days-a-week - even during the holidays.
Assisted by computers, participating nurses will have access to a database of medical information to answer basic health-care questions.
The computers will also store and retrieve information about more than 1,000 services available at community agencies and participating hospitals and clinics. ASK-A-NURSE specialists can also answer questions about physicians and their office hours, women's services, mental health and behavioral problems.
IHC officials said the service will not replace the family physician.
Residents of Utah, Idaho, and Wyoming can call ASK-A-NURSE at a toll-free number, 1-800-444-848. There are local phone numbers for Salt Lake City, 972-8488; Ogden, 392-8488; Provo, 377-8488, and Logan, 752-8488.
