Emergency Information Form (EIF) for Children with Special Needs (Spanish Version)


This important document will assure prompt and appropriate care for children and youth with special health care needs (CYSHCN). Now, when these patients present to emergency departments or health care professionals with an acute illness or injury, physicians, parents, EMS professionals, and nurses will be able to use the EIF as a tool to transfer critical information.

The EIF will ensure that a child's complicated medical history is concisely summarized and available when it is needed most - when the child presents with an acute health problem at a time when neither parent nor pediatrician is immediately available.
