🚨PSA: #iPhone users! Please set up #MedicalID on your phone-we can see your medical info even with your screen locked. This is SO HELPFUL when you come in and are unable to communicate with us after a terrible accident. 🚑😵 It can help save your life! (1/7)
You can put allergies on Medical ID, emergency contacts, medical conditions, medications you take, blood type, any random medical notes, even organ donation status (and if you aren’t registered, you can register super easily through the app! 🙌🏼) (2/7)
I look for it every time we get an unresponsive patient with an iPhone! Most people haven’t filled it out 😢💔 which is sad. Help us take the best care of you! Otherwise, we’re flying blind for quite a while when you first come in. (3/7)
Medical ID can help us:
-Identify who you are 🙋‍♀️
-Stop us from worsening your situation by giving you something you have an anaphylactic allergy to 🙅‍♂️
-Tell us you’re on blood thinners so if you have uncontrollable bleeding we know to give you reversal agents 💊 (4/7)
-Give us clues as to why you might be unresponsive (diabetes, epilepsy, etc) 🤔
-We can call your loved ones to tell them you’re hurt but we are taking good care of you ❤️so helpful!!! (5/7)
🚑🚨Help your emergency care team out, please fill out medical ID!👩‍⚕️👨‍⚕️🙏🏼🏥
