Remove The Sting From Going To Doctor

Don’t you hate sitting in the doctor’s office and filling out those forms? Digging through your purse or pockets for the information you need? Trying to remember all those dates?

Here is how to be prepared. It takes a little time, but you only have to do it once. If you’re married it is easier if you do it together.

Print a separate sheet for each family member:

  • Name, date of birth, social security
  • All medications – including vitamins
  • Any surgeries – type, date, hospital, doctor
  • Allergies – including reactions
  • Print extra copies
  • Keep separate folder for each family member

Now you can grab a copy next time you go to the doctor. Something else I do is have my driver’s license and insurance card ready.

Another thing, if you babysit or have grandchildren you need to have signed consent from a parent/guardian to have them treated if something happens. Otherwise, the hospital must take time to contact the parent to get permission.

I think you will be glad that you took the time to create these records.

May Your Glass Always Be Half Full
