The purpose of a medical care permission form is to give the asking party information on allergies, past injuries and insurance information in case of emergencies, notes the Law Depot. Medical care permission forms may be different per establishment, but all generally ask the same questions.
If an emergency is to occur the medical form will alert the caretakers of possible reactions to worry about when treating an injury. The form also allows the person designated to sign medical consents for your child in your absence, as stated on Nationwide Children's Hospital. A medical form may also have contact information to get in touch with family or friends to get more help or alert them of the emergency. Medical forms are often used in sports or school activities.
