Create an Emergency Plan

The following information is CRITICAL and must be an attached to the Yellow Pages. Every person in the group should carry their yellow pages with them at all times. A copy of the yellow pages should be kept near every telephone in the patient’s home as well. And post a copy on the refrigerator door so that it is accessible to a visitor. If care recipient is in hospice care you want to call them rather than the EMS especially if the patient has a DNR (do not resuscitate) order.

You will find the Yellow Pages in our Form Downloads
