A simple document to save time and stress when someone goes into hospital has been developed by a new website that helps consumers navigate the maze of health and social care.
The Healthcare.co.uk Hospital Passport is designed to help hospital staff get to know a new patient quickly by providing key information about him or her. As well as listing known medical conditions, medications and allergies, it also provides more personal details such as the name someone likes to be known by, food likes and dislikes, favourite activities and a list of family and friends.
Going into hospital is always a stressful time, whether it is in an emergency or planned.
One way to make it all a bit easier is to have key information that medical staff might need to know about you all in one place. With the vital details at your fingertips, you can quickly provide the answers to many of the questions that always seem to need urgent answers.
That’s where the Healthcare.co.uk Hospital Passport comes in. Download it, print it off and complete it at your leisure, then keep it handy until it’s needed – and make sure family members know where to find it in an emergency.
The Hospital Passport isn’t intended to be a medical document but more of a ‘snapshot’ to help staff get to know you quickly –and there’s even space to include a photo of yourself if you like.
No one looks forward to going into hospital, but if you do have to go, you and your family will have one less thing to worry about.
