Bracelet Holds Medical Information
I recently got an MD Alert bracelet. It’s pretty clever, as well as high quality, inexpensive, and very unobtrusive. It plugs into a USB port on any computer and has my complete medical life history in it, available to any EMS or MD should someone “find my bones” someplace…laugh… Nikki [my caregiver] has been inputting my doctors, contacts, medications, existing conditions, allergies, prior treatments, “Do Not Resuscitate” order, living will, power of attorney, etc. It could easily save your life or that of a loved one when seconds count. It’ll be with you when it’s needed. Mine cost $19.95 online. Search for “MD Alert”.
