Advance Directive Storage
In the event of an emergency, will your wishes be known and honored? Will your loved ones be prepared to make decisions on your behalf if and when the time comes? Will your loved ones know where to find a copy of your advance directives?
With MedicAlert Foundation, your written advance directives are safely and confidentially stored and made available when and where they're needed. Storing your Advance Directive Order in your EMIR® ensures responders will be notified of it when they contact MedicAlert.
Most emergency responders in the United States will initiate CPR or other life-sustaining measures unless they see a recognized DNR order for the patient. With a MedicAlert® membership, you’re able to communicate your pre-hospital Do Not Resuscitate (DNR) orders as part of your MedicAlert medical ID.
It’s important for you to consider your Do Not Resuscitate (DNR) orders before an emergency takes place. MedicAlert members can display their pre-hospital DNR orders on their medical IDs and store their orders in their EMIR as part of their membership.
MedicAlert Foundation® is more than a medical ID - we are the most dependable, responsive, intelligent, and trusted emergency support network.
