Have you ever stopped to think about what would happen if you were in an accident and unable to relay your medical history or medication schedule to the paramedics and medical professionals who treat you? If you answered "no," you aren't alone. Many people don't think about how medical professionals need access to medical information for patients after accidents. Of course, some people wear medical alert bracelets that can contain basic information, but not everyone does.
Senate Bill 91 is aimed at making it easy for motorists to let emergency medical professionals know about their medical history. If passed, this bill would implement a program in which drivers could place a yellow sticker on the rear window of their car. This alerts EMTs and emergency responders to look in the glove box of the vehicle for basic medical information and medical contact information.
