Medical Alert Identification

So, I don’t have a medical alert bracelet yet, and have been searching for an affordable one. The one that we are all so familiar with is too expensive for my budget. I’ve contemplated a wrist tattoo, which would vary in cost depending on what is done.

Update: as of October 24 I have one 🙂

It’s important to have one, regardless of the issues we face, as emergency personnel look for these when they arrive and examine the patient. Hospitals use these to clue in to appropriate treatment, or things to avoid, like no MRI, allergy to medicines, heart conditions and even the fact a person has contact lenses in their eyes.

So here are some options:

A Google search with the term medical alert brings up other related devices as well.
