Know Your Meds
Knowing what medications you and / or a loved one take can be essential information in an emergency. Doctors will want to know this information before treating a patient. You don’t want to be in a hospital emergency room with a parent, spouse or child and not have this info.
If you have members of your family that regularly take prescription medicines, take 10 minutes today and write out the medications and dosages and any specials instructions. You might also consider including allergies and chronic medical problems.
This will be essential if you need to leave loved ones in the care of others and / or if by chance you aren’t around during an emergency. It will also be helpful if you can’t remember everything! Make sure you add it to your emergency grab and go binder!
Once you’ve created such a form, it can also save time in an emergency even if you are around. You can simply hand it to the emergency medical personnel instead of taking the time to tell them everything then and there.
Best of all….it shouldn’t take more than 10 minutes or so to create! Easy Peasy!
