Bob Barker hospital


Bob Barker was rushed to the emergency room last week after a fall. The 93-year-old former host of The Price Is Right is said to be doing okay after the accident. According to TMZ, Barker was rushed to the hospital where he underwent some tests. The nature of those tests are unclear, but it sounds like everything checked out okay.

Barker fell in the bathroom of his Hollywood Hills home. The report indicates that he “slipped” which suggests that he may have fallen in the shower or getting in or out of the shower. Barker promptly called 911. When paramedics arrived, he refused to go in the ambulance. However, he needed to be seen by a doctor because he hit his head. Barker agreed to go to the hospital, but he had his housekeeper drive him, according to the report. He spent a “couple of hours” in the hospital before being given the “okay” to go home.

This is not the first time that Barker has needed medical attention in recent years. In 2015, Barker suffered a pretty nasty fall that landed him in the emergency room. At the time, Barker had been walking on the sidewalk in Los Angeles when he tripped and fell, hitting his head. According to CNN, two nearby police officers called an ambulance. Barker was taken to the hospital where he received stitches on his forehead. The site also reported that Barker hurt his left knee in the fall. He was said to be doing okay within days of the accident, but was understandably sore.

Barker was the host of The Price Is Right for 35 years. He retired from his post in 2007. Barker has also done some work as an actor. He made his big screen debut alongside Adam Sandler in Happy Gilmore in 1996. He has also been in a few television shows including The Nanny and How I Met Your Mother.
