With a family of 4, sickness and emergencies are bound to happen ~ especially with a child who gets extremely high fevers and multiple ear infections a year, like my daughter.
While visiting different doctors at walk-in clinics, ERs and other facilities it is hard to remember exactly when the last time she had antibiotics or when the last time we brought her in. Especially during those 2am ER visits it is hard to remember all the details. But at least I am able to go through in my mind and come up with some answers. In an emergency where I am not around or not able to think through the different times, having one place to keep and record all this information would definitely come in handy.
The New Emergency Profile Tool from TELUS Health is a FREE, online emergency record-keeping tool that will become a valuable resource for your family.
The New Emergency Profile Tool helps prepare families for any emergency quickly and easily. The tool helps get the right information to the right people at the right time.
Once you have signed up and entered all your important information like medications, allergies and conditions, you get a card that can be printed out and put in your wallet defining all your health information at a glance. Not only can you print out profile sheets and wallet cards, but you will now also have a secure TELUS health space account where you can store, organize and share your health information.
Your Emergency Profile information is easy to share either electronically
or in print form to baby sitters, day care workers, teachers and family members. Having an Emergency Profile is also very beneficial for adults while travelling abroad for business or pleasure.
Having close friends and family members pass away suddenly from accidents and health problems, I know how important being able to have access to health and contact information is.
I signed up and entered my family’s health information and emergency contact person’s information. I found the whole process super easy and straight forward and would definitely recommend everyone to take advantage of this service ~ remember it’s FREE! I don’t know about you, but I like knowing that all our emergency medical information is in one place and easy to access.
