Preparing for Emergencies

It can be difficult to remember important information about your child's health in an emergency. 

Because of this, doctors suggest that parents keep a record of their kids' important health information at hand. This can help medical personnel make important decisions more quickly.

This is one reason you should make sure to sign up for our Delaware Pediatrics Patient Portal. Having access to your child’s medical record in an emergency situation can be vital. 

To sign up for the portal, if you have not already done so, please go to our Patient Portal tab. 

If your kids spend time in childcare or with a babysitter, you'll want to provide them with additional written information. Besides how to reach you quickly, leave the name and phone number of other emergency contacts. Also, provide them with contact information for Delaware Pediatrics, your dentist, and local emergency and poison control numbers in case you can't be reached.

If you'll be away from your kids for a longer time, such as for a vacation or business trip,  you'll want to leave a release allowing their caregiver to authorize medical care in your absence.
