TELUS Emergency Profile is a secure online tool to help you organize all your medical information in one place. It is completely free, easy to use and is so important to have.
Just imagine if you or a member of your family had a medical emergency. Would you be able to remember all of the medical details? Wouldn’t you want to spend your time with your loved one instead of trying to locate the information? What if you were the one who was sick or injured and you were unable to communicate a drug allergy, specific diagnosis or who to contact?
My aunt recently collapsed and medical personnel had no idea she had diabetes or the type of medications she was taking. If that information had been immediately available, they could have saved valuable time and she could have avoided being hospitalized as long as she was.
When someone has a medical emergency and cannot communicate or remember vital information to be treated, a tool such as this can save their life.
