THINGS TO DO WHEN YOU HAVE A MEDICAL CONDITION
Write down the numbers for
- Your doctor's office
- Your doctor's phone service (for after-hours calls)
- The number for the emergency room to your hospital
Keep a copy in your wallet, and a copy on your refrigerator.
Write down your medical condition and medications on a piece of paper and keep it in your wallet. Also keep a list of medications to which you have had reactions. (see Medication tips).
Have a "buddy" - someone you can call to discuss questions or changes in conditions.
If you have a question, ask!
