You guys, listen up: God forbid you have a medical emergency and a doctor or nurse needs to locate your “in case of emergency” contacts. Meanwhile, your phone is password protected and time is of the essence.
All hail South Carolina-based nurse Katherine Jarmy, who shared a super-easy solution for iPhone users.
What you do: Locate the Health app on your iPhone (it comes included on your device) and tap “Medical ID” in the bottom right-hand corner.
Now what? Plug in all your info--everything from your DOB to your emergency contacts and medical conditions. There’s even a space for your blood type.
But my phone has a passcode! In an emergency, that doesn’t matter. A nurse or doctor can simply tap “emergency” on your lock screen and access your medical ID, no problem.
Wow, I feel safer already. We do, too. Thanks, Katherine.
