Resources: Travel / Hospital Packet
Share |

This packet is designed to help consumers communicate their medical needs when they travel or are admitted into the hospital, and can be especially important for an emergency admission at an unfamiliar institution. We recommend that consumers carry the completed form with them whenever they leave home. Consumers may need help from their physician and/or homecare company to complete certain sections.

 

The Packet Includes

     1. a suggested cover letter (pick and choose which points/bulleted statements you wish to convey)
     2. a general overview of personal information/medical history
     3. a page for HPN (IV nutrition) specific information
     4. a page for HEN (tube feeding) specific information

 

Recognizing that many consumers may want to personalize their document, and that all will need to update it regularly, we are offering the Travel/Hospital Admissions Packet as a pdf, and as a MicroSoft Word document.

Click here for more tips on traveling with home IV or tube-fed nutrition, including information on minimizing complications when getting through airport security.
