My Mother is 93 years old and has spent her share of time in hospitals. My sister, who does not live near by, relies on me for a blow by blow account of what is going on. In all kinds of inclement weather I have had to go outside the hospital to use my cell phone to deliver my report to my sister.
So when I came across this article of a 2007 study on cell phone use in hospitals that appeared in the Mayo Clinic Proceedings, I was thrilled. The report showed that the use of cell phones does not interfere with medical equipment in patient care areas of hospitals. The next time you go to a hospital, you might want to take a copy of this study with you so that you can communicate with the outside world!!
