<2>Be Prepared for Anything with the Prescription History List
A visit to an Urgent Care facility for antibiotics to treat an infection helped to invent the printable Prescription History List.
It was a holiday weekend and I was seen by a doctor I had never met before that happened to be on call. He asked which antibiotics I had taken previously, and I remembered a few, but not all. As he called out the names of prescriptions and asked if I had ever taken them, the best I could do was guess based on if the names sounded familiar! He asked when I took them, and I didn’t know. He asked what illness I took them for, and I couldn’t remember.
These questions were about medications I MYSELF have taken, and most of the information I didn’t know! You can guess how hard it is to keep these things straight when you start adding information for your spouse and children. I started to panic, wondering what would happen if one of my children had to be taken to the ER by a sitter or relative. They wouldn’t know about the kids’ medication allergies or reactions.
After my experience at the Urgent Care, I created a system to manage prescription medication information. Our lists can be left with sitters in case of emergency, and can even be copied by your doctor and placed in your medical record so you don’t have the missing information like I did! They are ideal for when you change doctors or clinics, or even when you move to a new town.
