Tips & Products for protecting your loved one

  1. Obtain EMERGENCY MEDICAL ORDERS from your specialist
    • Must be on their letterhead, signed and dated annually
    • Must list an emergency on-call number
    • Must clearly state the patient’s name
    • Must state emergency medication if applicable and dosage
    • Must outline steps to take in brief and precise format
  2. For Medications: create an EMERGENCY MEDICINE KIT                                  
    • It should be clearly marked & always attached to the car-seat or an empty seatbelt in the car and should include:
      • Emergency Medical Orders from your specialist
      • Emergency Treatment Plan from your EMS service
      • Emergency Dosage of your medication in the original packaging
      • Syringes, needles, tourniquets, etc needed to administer
      • Most current weight of the person
  3. Contact your local Ambulance Service  (both city and county if an option)
    • Inform them of your special medical need
    • Ask for a Treatment Plan to be created
      • This will only apply to that service but it’s better than none
  4. Contact your local Hospital if you don’t live near your Treatment Center
    • Ask for an Emergency Treatment Plan there also
    • Explain your special medical needs
    • Ask how this plan will be utilized with changes in ER staff
      • In many instances, hospitals will inform you that stabilizing and transporting is their only option but at least you will know to rely on the EMS staff.
    • Training is available for Hospital staff and Paramedics.

  1. I really appreciate your tips. Having a letter about emergency treatment from your doctor sounds like a good way to inform those who are doing your treatment. My son has asthma, so I want to get a plan in case we have any emergencies with him or anyone else in my family. I should figure out where a good treatment center is.
