National Preparedness Month Daily Challenge: Day 20

If you missed the previous challenges, you can catch up here:

Today’s Challenge

Do you or any of your family members take medications? Do any of you take over-the-counter meds on a regular basis? Do you have any pre-existing conditions?

Today, write down a list of medications that any of your family members are taking. Include the dosage, prescribing doctor, and pharmacy. As well, note any pre-existing conditions. Keep this list in a place that it’s easy to grab in the event of a medical emergency.

Family members should also keep a list of their own medications and pre-existing conditions in their wallets so that if they are taken into the hospital and cannot speak for themselves, the emergency team is likely to find this list. This is very important, as some emergency medications can react very badly with prescription medications.

Is this something you’ve already done?

You may have done this already, but if not I suggest you take the time to do it today. Is there anything you’d add to this list?

Here’s where to add your answers to the forum.
