I figured, with so many people on here, there has to be a EMT. Or those with the know-how.
I have a medical bracelet from Key2Life, with a little USB flash disk.
Where EMT's can boot up the USB flash drive right inside the ambulance.
However, the software on it is borked, I can't remember the password, tried 100 different ways. Without the password, I can not edit it. I called up Key2Life, they said I have to buy a new bracelet. (unless I can somehow hack it) I don't want to spend another $50 on it.
Is there a certain format that you can also read? Like PDF, Docx, HTML? If I can come up with a layout, similar to the software, this would save me $50.
This is tricky. Does your local ambulance companies have a laptop? We do, however the next ambulance over who would get dispatched in our place if we are out, does not have them. I have never seen these before.
What some people have given me before is a little card that's either just regular paper or typed that has Med lists, Allergies and Past Medical History. Name, Address, DOB, Telephone, Primary Care Doctor, last four of your social (We can get the rest of it from you). However at the hospital if you would be unresponsive, at registration I can say your name, DOB, and they'll most likely have everything. They then print me a demographic sheet that has everything on it with your SS number and insurance.
If someone gave me a flash drive, I don't think I'd connect it to the laptop, it's secure upfront. There would be no way for me to print it off and give it to the hospital.
Printing it out has to be cheaper and you can have multiple copies available. If I'm given a copy, I make a copy for myself and the RN who takes the report, the PT get's it back.
