Roper St. Francis Healthcare announces free Virtual Care visits during Hurricane Dorian

Roper St. Francis Healthcare is offering free Virtual Care visits now until Hurricane Dorian has passed by using code DORIAN.

Roper St. Francis Virtual Care allows on-demand video visits with a trusted healthcare provider anywhere. RSF hopes this service gives some peace of mind to be able to reach an “on call” healthcare provider anytime who will provide quality care when a patient’s regular doctor is unavailable.

Download the RSF Virtual Care app from the App Store or Google Play or visit rsfh.com/virtualcare.

Should a visit require medications, they can send a prescription to any pharmacy in the country.

    I bump my lip on my lap top around 10 am. I am on Eliquis. My lip has tripled in size since the initial hit. I don’t know if I should just keep an ice pack on it or go to the ER???
