Safety Tips by Diagnosis


Medical Alert Jewlery

Sharing medical information with first responders and 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 situation.  A great way to share health information with medical professionals is through medical ID bracelets or jewelry.  In addition to the standard stainless medical ID bracelets, there are other options that can store your child’s information.

  • Your child’s name 
  • Any drug or food allergies your child may have 
  • Name and phone number for one or two emergency contacts
