Why Is It Important To Update My Child's Emergency Information Form Every Year?

This form provides us with several very important things that allow us to provide appropriate care for your child.  
An updated, signed, and dated form gives the nurses permission to examine and treat your child when they come in to our office with complaints of illness or injury.
An updated form gives us specific parental desires and requests.
Updated medical concerns.  If your child was diagnosed with something new or had surgery over the summer include this information on the form. 
Updated phone numbers are so important to us.  We need to be able to reach you in the event of sickness or injury.  Only parents or guardians will be called (except in emergencies) unless you specify something different in writing. 
An updated Emergency Information form is important for the safety and well being of your child.  Thank you for taking the time to peruse the information and change, add, or delete anything that you feel is necessary.
