Good Housekeeping recommends creating a grab-and-go emergency file with these forms to speed up emergency room care and ensure that the attending medical experts receive the correct medical history for the patient. Each family member should have a separate file that includes a short medical history covering any surgeries or issues encountered, current medical conditions, the contact information for primary care physicians and allergies. Include immunization records, any current medications and insurance information, as well.
