Don't forget the nurse line
Planning a vacation? Wondering what to pack? Ask Mayo Clinic. Along with clothing, shoes, and a camera, remember to take along the phone number for Ask Mayo Clinic, your 24-hour nurse line. Just add this number to your mobile phone: 800-903-1836. When an injury or illness occurs, call to speak to a registered nurse right away. The nurse will ask some questions about your symptoms and then help you decide if you can address the situation with self-care or whether you should find a doctor's office or emergency room. Ask Mayo Clinic is not a substitute for medical care. It's a way to save time and money by helping you choose the right level of care.
