A star-struck service: impact of the admission of a celebrity to an inpatient unit.

Abstract

The celebrity shares features of the VIP or special patient. The celebrity, however, who refuses to remain anonymous within a hospital setting, often evokes more intense and even specific inappropriate reactions in those around him. His presence creates what the authors call the "star-struck phenomenon." The authors discuss the dynamics that produce this phenomenon.
