Vial of Life
The Vial of Life program is a voluntary, free program, that makes a person’s medical history, current medications, allergies and other pertinent health information available to our paramedics should you call for medical assistance. The Vial of Life information speaks for you in the event you cannot speak for yourself during a medical emergency. Our medics can quickly evaluate your medications and medial history to assist them and the hospital staff.
To participate in the program, the resident completes a medical information sheet, receives an empty syringe vial, a sticker, and Vial of Life magnet. The concept is to fill out the form, place the form in vial and place it on the top shelf of your refrigerator, and place the magnet on the front door of your refrigerator. The paramedics know where to look and this system makes it easy for them to treat you.
