Legal-Ease: Kids’ medical ID form not legally necessary but advisable

While it’s not legally necessary, many attorneys complete a basic information form for clients to let medical professionals know in emergency situations how to treat children. The document can inform doctors about unique medical conditions as well as any information they may need to know in an emergency situation. 

Usually, these documents include each child’s full name and date of birth, parents’ and guardians’ names and contact information and other important information a medical professional would need to know about a child in case of an emergency.
