There are some places in Florida where you may want to avoid seeing a fake one.
According to the Florida Department of Health, the state has more than 3,000 fake hospital visits.
The state’s Department of Public Health, in a statement, says “many of these visits are not legitimate and could have serious medical consequences.”
It says “there is no medical reason why a patient’s symptoms will not improve if treated at a real facility.”
If you are concerned about an incident, contact your local Health Department or call the state’s Health Hotline at 1-888-222-5262.
“While not a health care emergency, there are a few tips for avoiding a real medical visit with fake hospital.
The first is to ensure you’re not going to a hospital that has been closed.
You may want your friends and family to visit you instead, the statement says.
You can also check the hospital’s website to see if the hospital has a sign in the lobby that says it’s closed.
It may be a sign that it’s a non-medical facility.
If that’s the case, you may not be able to see your loved one.
In some cases, a hospital may not even be in the area.”
