Health Tip of the Day

Create a Family Medical Chart

Creating a medical chart for your family members can help them get treated properly, especially if a medical emergency occurs. To make the chart, record the following information for each member in an accessible notebook or file folder:

  • A list of drug and food allergies

  • A list of medications, including the dosages and how often they're taken

  • A list of all the person's doctors' names, addresses and phone numbers

  • Brief medical history, including any chronic conditions

  • Date of last tetanus shot and other immunizations

  • The person's health plan phone number and member number
