Do you keep an updated list of your medications and medical conditions?
The current wave of Coronavirus cases makes it especially critical that every household maintains a list of medications and medical history for each person, and makes sure the form is where it can be grabbed and taken on the ambulance in the event hospital transport is necessary.
Our ambulances at this time no longer allow family members to accompany patients, and hospitals are not permitting visitors other than in exceptional circumstances. If a family member needs to go to the hospital, emergency medical clinicians can take the information with them and pass it on to hospital caregivers to ensure quality care.
We would ask you to make sure you have this information handy and we even made a form that will help us, help you. Feel free to organize this information however you think is best.
We would also suggest you update your “in case of emergency” contacts in your phone.
Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions, we can even send you a pdf if that helps!
