Holy Family Hospital conducts Lunch and Learn events at the Bond County Senior Center on a bi-monthly basis, to provide area senior citizens with helpful information to help improve their health and life.  In April, Max Evans, Paramedic and Licensed EMS Instructor, provided an EMS overview, explaining the role of the EMS service in expediting your care and getting you to the hospital.  Some helpful tips Evans offered:

  • Always have a medication and allergy list available and up-to-date.

  • Have your medical history on your list, such as heart problems, stroke, high blood pressure, etc.

  • Have a list of your doctor(s) and/or specialist(s).

  • Have these copies in your purse, on the refrigerator, or keep a copy or two that is easily accessible.

  • Be aware of what your health care wishes are in for your life, and share your decisions with your family and physician.
