  1. Decide on the parameters

    Decide on who is covered by the consent form. This is usually child care providers or school nurses. Decide also on the level of treatment, such as emergency medical care or chronic illness treatment, that is authorized.

  2. Title the document

    Type in bold and all capitals the title "Medical Authorization Form." Make the title a larger font than the rest of the document.

  3. Place your name at the top

    In the body of the form, start with the sentence "We, the undersigned," and put your full name. Next, state your relationship to the children followed by their full names. Include their birthdays.

  4. Name the caretakers

    Write the full name of the caretakers involved and their relationships to the children.

  5. Name the parameters of treatment

    Dictate how much medical treatment the caretakers may authorize. Be specific, and include when the authorization stops and ends.

  6. Dictate further procedures

    If you want to be contacted right away, include this in the letter. State your place of work as well as the phone number. If there is another emergency contact, include the name, relationship and phone number of this person.

  7. Add relevant medical information

    Include insurance information, the child's primary physician and any medical allergies. If you have a preferred hospital, include that information.

  8. Sign and date the form

    Sign the form above a typed line of your name, and include the date.

  9. Distribute the form

    Give a copy of the form to the relevant caretaker, your pediatrician, your insurance company and your child's school.
