Medical Alert Enrollment Form
Using the Medical Alert Enrollmen Form, health info helped the police find wandering disabled.
The Union Police department (Union City CA) designed a Medical Alert Enrollment Form which helps train policemen find wandering patients who had memory problems and other health issues.
In particular, knowing if the person is right-handed or left-handed shortens the time to search for him/her.
An incident that occurred where a disabled person was located within 15 minutes as they searched for each right turn from where he was last seen.
Kudos to the Unition City Police department for designing the Medical Alert Enrollment Form. All cities must have a similar one and families can use this info to be kept together with other medical health data.
