The woman’s condition is not known, but the restaurant’s owner, Jon Basso, reported that she had been indulging in margaritas and cigarettes, in addition to one of the establishment’s fat and calorie-packed dishes.

On the hospital-themed eatery’s menu, you’ll find “Flatliner Fries,” pure cream shakes, and burgers that can be ordered in terms of “single, double, triple or quadruple bypass” sizes. The Quadruple Bypass Burger has been named by the Guinness Book of World Records as the world’s most caloric sandwich for containing nearly 10 thousand calories.

But while the staff may be dressed in nurse and doctor uniforms, they have no formal medical training, should you find yourself in need of evaluation.

A diet rich in fat and calories will significantly increase your risk of coronary heart disease, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol.  To find a cardiologist near you, visit Vitals.
