It is hard to prepare for the unexpected. One thing that can be done to prepare for a possible unexpected visit to the ER, is to keep a list of key information. This can be either a small scratch paper or on a cell phone or both. Some important information to have handy includes emergency contacts, list of drug allergies, list of current medications, name of primary care doctor, list of prior surgeries and a list of any chronic medical conditions like hypertension or diabetes.
