Modern Healthcare - - OUTLIERS -

With the Health­care In­for­ma­tion and Man­age­ment Sys­tems So­ci­ety meet­ing in Las Ve­gas this week for its an­nual IT ex­trav­a­ganza, Out­liers wants to is­sue a culi­nary cau­tion. The Heart At­tack Grill may not be your health­i­est din­ing op­tion. Their proud slo­gan: “Taste worth dy­ing for!”

Seems its menu warn­ings nearly proved true for a man at the down­town Ve­gas res­tau­rant, which of­fers “By­pass” burg­ers, “Flat­liner” fries and free meals to peo­ple over 350 pounds. Plus, un­fil­tered cig­a­rettes! Ama­teur video showed a man be­ing wheeled out of the eatery on a stretcher af­ter a med­i­cal episode that res­tau­rant em­ploy­ees say looked like, well, a heart at­tack.

Eatery owner Jon Basso told KVVU-TV FOX5 he thought it was a joke when a wait­ress told him a cus­tomer eat­ing a Triple By­pass burger (weigh­ing in at 1½ pounds, with the op­tion of adding 15 slices of ba­con) was sweat­ing and shak­ing.

A Las Ve­gas fire spokesman told the As­so­ci­ated Press that paramedics were sum­moned and a man was in­deed hos­pi­tal­ized. Basso said he heard the man is re­cu­per­at­ing. His name and the med­i­cal con­di­tion he suf­fered weren’t re­leased.

No word on if the res­tau­rant de­liv­ers to the Vene­tian-palazzo-sands Expo Cen­ter for you Himss-go­ers. There’s al­ways the 2-pound Quadru­ple By­pass burger to sam­ple (with an op­tional 20 slices of ba­con).
