Vial of Life
Will vital emergency medical information be available in your time of need?
The Vial of Life program is offered to those residents that suffer from medical disease and take medications on a daily basis. A form is provided for the participant to list their medical history, medications taken on a daily basis, and any medication or other significant allergies. Other information can include the family doctor, cardiologist, or other specialist and preferred hospital. The form is placed in a small medication sized container labeled "Vial of Life" and is stored in the refrigerator. A magnetic card is provided to attach to the outside of the refrigerator to indicate that the vial is inside. Although the vial does not require refrigeration, this location was chosen as it is a nearly universal appliance within the home.
Contact the Emergency Medical Services Division at (302) 395-8184 to obtain a Vial of Life kit.
