Emergency Medical Information Sheet

Here's something you can to do for each member of your family and for your elderly parents, or for that matter anyone whose care you would become responsible for in time of an emergency. You can create a Emergency Medical Information Sheet. When my father was in and out of the hospital this made things so much easier. Keep this in a labeled envelope on the refrigerator.
Do this on your computer and it will be easy to update. Post the date on it, and the envelope, and check it over every six months. Be sure to include the following:

Name, address, phone number of the person (place of work and numbers)

Persons to contact in case of emergency and their relationship to the person

Date of Birth - Height, Weight, Medical History - Any Current Medical Conditions

Current Medications - Name, strength, dosage

Primary Care Doctor and any specialty Doctors with their name, addresses, phone numbers and Fax numbers

Photocopies of Medical Insurance Cards - front and back, and Driver's license

Any advanced medical directives - DNR/Living Will

Notary letter of other persons other than yourself that can make medical decisions in your absence say for instance for your children

Preferred hospital if there is more than one in your area

If there is a pet that would need to be cared for any information that is needed about the pet, including the Vet, and who would care for it
