Be Prepared for Emergencies: Checklist for Patients with Significant Medical Needs
Skip to content
Many high-risk patients with significant medical needs rely on having electricity to charge their medical equipment or keep medications cold.
To help ensure you are prepared for any emergency that may occur, such as during inclement weather events, the CHOP Home Care team created a check list. Please review the following information to have the proper safety precautions in place.
If you do not feel you are able to handle the event safely, or if your electrical service is not working, please go outside the affected area or to the nearest emergency room.
If you have any concerns or questions, please contact CHOP Home Care at 800-866-1242.
