After Stroke — Medical File Checklist

Medical File Checklist

Have you made your Medical File Checklist?

Create a check list that is easily located and up to date. This eliminates additional stressors during medical emergencies/appointments allowing for more time to focus on important questions for providers rather than searching for information.

Keep this in a safe place whether this is electronically on paper or both.

Keep the information up-to-date over time and as information changes.

Information to include:

  • Your medical history
  • Medication lists and any allergies
  • Your insurance information
  • The names and phone number of all of your doctors
  • Legal documents

Think about putting the files together in a bright colored folder and place it in a prominent place such as on your refrigerator.
