You may be unconscious, injured or so confused that you are unable to give accurate personal or medical information. For emergency first responders, not having access to this information immediately can make diagnosis difficult or delay vital treatment. The results could be fatal.
The MedicAlert® emblem protects in four ways, ensuring that emergency healthcare personnel can access the right information at the right time to provide the best possible care to you.
In an emergency, healthcare and emergency services personnel can immediately access your vital personal and medical information by telephoning the 24/7 hotline engraved on the back of the emblem. Our professionally trained hotline operators will verify the authenticity of the caller before providing any of your confidential information.
The Rod of Asclepius combined with the words 'Medic' and 'Alert' are now an internationally recognised and trusted emblem that alerts medical professionals to the wearer having a medical condition. Ambulance paramedics and healthcare profesionals are trained to look for vital medical information engraved on the back of your MedicAlert emblem.
The medical/personal information that you choose to display on the back of your emblem will alert emergency services and healthcare professionals to your critical information in an emergency. You can also take care of your future care, by including written advance directives and palliative care requests if you choose. This is how your emblem can speak for you.
A unique number is issued to each member and is engraved on the back of the member's emblem. This is used by emergency services and healthcare personnel to identify you and your medical condition(s) when you may not be able to speak for yourself.
The MedicAlert emblem provides peace of mind that you are protected in an emergency, always.
