Be Ready for Emergencies
If you rely on regular medication to manage a complex health condition, you know how important it is to always have enough medication. In the event of an emergency that requires you to leave your home, be prepared. Of course, if you must leave right away due to a life-threatening situation such as a fire, you may not be able to do anything before you leave. Your personal safety comes first. In that case, MedCart can help you arrange for emergency refills.
When time permits, be sure to do the following:
- Take enough medication and supplies with you. Even if you expect to return home in a specific length of time, take supplies to last a few extra days.
- If you use an infusion pump or other device, take it with you.
- Use ice or freezer gel packs in a cooler to protect medication that needs to be kept cool.
- Call MedCart so we know where you are and how to reach you in case you need assistance.
