Thank you for putting this together. I would like to add something I typed up for myself and loved ones: A Health Packet. This can not only save you energy at ER intake, but can help you stay ahead of omissions, mitigate mistakes, and show caregivers that you are serious about your health and upcoming care you are about to receive. HEALTH PACKET OVERVIEW 1. Cover Sheet:– Name, DOB, SSN, Address, phone, email, Insurance card back and front, Emergency contacts 2. Health Overview– Notable Past Issues / Hospitalizations– Current Issues 3. Medications– Essential Daily Meds, meaning there bad side effects if miss– Other Essential Daily Meds– Supportive Daily meds– As-Needed meds (e.g. Tylenol, Advil, Zantac, Benedryl, etc.) Include: Medication Name, dose, dosing schedule 4. Drug Allergies– Allergies to Medications– Significant Environmental Allergies (like Latex, bees)– Significant / anaphylactic Food Allergies (e.g. nuts) 5. Physicians List– Type, Name, Location, Phone, Fax, Email, Web address 6. Supplements List– Vitamins, supplements and reason why, if applicable* Include: Vitamin or Supplement Name, dose, dosing schedule All is bulleted. No narrative paragraphs. My ex, who is a physician, recommended this. Doctors, nurses and other healthcare workers don’t want to read paragraphs. At the Header of each page is my name and DOBIn the Footer of each page is the date last updated * For example, a family member of mine has the MTHFR genetic mutation and does not process B vitamins normally, so must take methyl B supplements to function optimally
