Abdominal pain causes alarm

A university employee and Redpoint client was working in Costa Rica when she felt severe abdominal pain. She went to a local clinic’s emergency room, where it was confirmed she was suffering from her chronic gastrointestinal disorder, possibly exacerbated by an infection. She was transported by ambulance to a better-equipped local hospital. 

University officials contacted Redpoint operations to monitor her condition at the Central American hospital. Redpoint medical staff communicated with Costa Rican physicians about her care and the medicines she was being prescribed. Redpoint’s Stanford-affiliated physicians reviewed all of the recommendations and prescriptions and concurred with the local physicians’ treatment.

Redpoint kept in regular communication with the university, and the patient has been discharged. She reported that she is feeling better.
