Medical Records To Carry In Case Of Emergency

In an earlier post, I referenced an article in the Dallas Morning News about medical records. Parts of that article are worth repeating. Here is a list of information the newspaper recommends people carry with them in case of an emergency:

  • Blood type
  • Up-to-date list of medications and dosages, herbal compounds and dietary supplements
  • Allergies and adverse reactions to medications or substances
  • Diseases, diagnoses and chronic conditions
  • Immunization record
  • Emergency contacts, insurance information and personal physician
  • Advance directives, such as a living will and an organ donor card

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
