Safety Tips by Diagnosis

Personal Medical Identification—Tags, Cards, Jewelry

Sharing medical information with first responders or emergency department staff is key to proper and prompt patient care. Children who are non-verbal or have special health needs are at greatest risk of delayed treatment in an emergency.  One way to share health information with medical professionals is through medical ID tags, cards or jewelry.
