If something happens to you, first responders will typically go to your wallet to find your emergency medical ID card. Emergency responders need to know what your blood type is, if you have allergies, or about any medical conditions you might have such as diabetes and who your contacts are.
Make sure you and your family prepare for the unexpected by creating, storing and sharing an emergency card using Gentreo. Carry it with you and keep it in your Gentreo Digital Vault, so it is available online, anytime from anywhere you can access the internet. Easily update your information and share updates with your friends and family at any time using Gentreo.
Unfortunately, emergencies sometimes happen. Having a Gentreo Emergency Medical ID Card can help you, first responders, and your loved ones find the critical information needed to make sure you get the care you want and need.
The information that goes on a Gentreo emergency medical card includes:
1. Your emergency contact person and how first responders can reach that person
2. Notes about other people to contact if your first emergency contact person does not respond to calls
3. Any medications you’re taking, since some drugs interfere with others or cause adverse reactions when mixed with other medicines
4. Any medical conditions first responders should know about when caring for you (For example, if you have diabetes or if you are allergic to certain medications)
5. Your blood type (Note: The doctor’s office or the Red Cross can tell you what your type is if you have ever had blood drawn or donated blood)
6. Your doctor’s name and contact information (Hospital staff may need to contact your doctor to get specific information about your medical history)
7. Your religious preferences (If you want caregivers to know them)
8. Your organ donation wishes (This can be important in helping first responders carry out your wishes to help others)
9. Other documents have you put in place (Such as a Health Care Proxy, a Power of Attorney or a Living Will)
10. Your insurance provider and your member or policy number (Your insurance provider needs to know that something has happened within a certain time period in order for them to cover hospital stays or other medical intervention like ambulance services)
Use Gentreo to create an Emergency Card electronically. Or, if you already have one made, you can easily upload and store your card in your Gentreo Digital Vault and choose who you want to have access to the card in case an emergency happens.
