Travel and Hospital Admissions
Travel and Hospital Pack
During an Oley Conference, several consumers and clinicians put their heads together to brain storm a document that would be helpful for consumers when they travel or are admitted into the hospital. The resulting packet is meant to help consumers communicate their medical needs and history to hospital personnel, and can be especially important for emergency admissions at an unfamiliar institution. We recommend that all consumers fill out the relevant parts of the packet and carry it with them whenever they leave home. Consumers may need help from their physician and/or homecare company to complete certain sections.
Packet for Travel and Hospital Admissions (word format) – will be saved onto your computer and updated as you needed.
Users are strongly advised to review this chart with their MD, noting any differences in protocols/procedures, prior to taking
any actions recommended by this form. The form is intended as a helpful reference, and should not replace the advice of
your MD. Users should read the entire form, at least briefly, comparing symptoms listed in each section with those
actually experienced by the consumer, before taking any action.
