♥ Chronic Illness – Organization and Must Haves♥ Pt 1

I’m going to give you ideas of how to organize your medical stuff and a fun way to make everyday  appointments a little easier! Also, I own none of the printable pages below

♥ Chronic Illness – Organization ♥

 

VERY important Phone numbers and information

Papers to have that makes appointments and everyday life easier and safer!

Items I recommend to have on you at all times

I recommend people with chronic illness or not to carry an updated medical ID, you can never be too safe. Below is the link to create one! It’s Free, printable, and pocket-sized!

 

ALWAYS carry medications you’re prescribed and take them ON TIME ! Your health is the main priority!

For fast and easy access I would make a medical binder..You can grab it and go in case of emergency and it’s easy to spot with all info together.

  • First thing I would do is get a binder, they come in many sizes and colors (What ever is best for you)
  • Second thing, I would do is get sheet protectors and labels!
  • I would mark a spot for each doctor, illness, etc.

Example:

All papers in that section that relates to the doctor.

  • Cardiologist
  • Orthopedic
  • Gastrointestinal
  • neurological …. etc.

Put all your important documents in page covers! It’s easier to get to and it keeps them safe. (Free Prints and downloads below!)

  • Medical cards and ID
  • Copies of doctor papers that have important info
  • Medication list
  • Allergy List
  • Cardiac log
  • Vaccines
  • Reasons for recent hospital visits
  • Any recent falls or injury’s / How it happened
  • Emergency and medical contact list –
  • Vital info Weight, Height, Blood Type etc..

( Everyone is different so you may not need much of the fill ins that’s listed )

Emergency contacts shouldn’t be limited to just direct family members, but….

  • Home
  • Work
  • Family members work place (If they can’t get ahold of them personally)
  • School phone numbers and contacts
  • Contacts of people who will take on certain responsibilities; Care of pets and children, house, etc.

Make sure you have local help contact information

  • *Emergency help line (Example; 911)*
  • Local Police Department *For non-emergencies
  • Local Fire Department *For non-emergencies
  • Local EMS
