Clinic Bathroom Alarm Helps Prevent Fatal Overdoses
BOSTON (CBS) – It’s often an addict’s most frequent choice to get high, a public bathroom. Recovering heroin addict Richard Guido knows something about that.
“Bathrooms are a safe zone. Once you lock it you have water, a mirror,” said Guido.
At Boston Health Care for the Homeless, a walk-in clinic offering medical services, it was becoming too frequent a place for addicts to overdose until electrician John King came up with a sensor system that’s been saving lives.
