The recommendation of health resorts is frequently expected of physicians who unconsciously assume the risk, little thinking what effects, both good and bad, the individual town or hotel may have on its guests. Convalescents, travellers and vacationists visit the health and summer resorts unsuspecting of any danger or with the confidence that the conditions are as the physician assumes or expects. The mere mention or naming of a resort by a physician is considered a recommendation and a therapeutic direction to be followed as any other therapeutic order. Opinions of resorts must be formed from personal observation, from description by others, or advertisement. There is an avoidance of the whole truth in many advertisements, yet these misstatements or evasions are accepted without question, and serving as the directing force, may ultimately end disastrously to the guests and finally to the resorts.
