The Emergency Medical Information Book – contains all of a person’s information and medical records needed if or when an ambulance is called and they need to be transported to a hospital.
When paramedics are called, a typical scenario is that distraught family members may be unable to give correct details of the patient’s condition, or the medication they may be on. The paramedics physically have to collect all the patients medication in the house, try and obtain a medical history and take it to the hospital with the patient.
This small book contains patient contacts, service or carer provider information, medications and any medical condition, so a paramedic is able to treat and ready a patient for transport to a hospital. The Emergency Medical Book Information Project is managed by the Lions Club of Blackwood in SA.
