Medical Alert Jewelry
The start of the school year usually means outfitting kids with a new wardrobe. Is your child’s medical ID as spiffy as his or her new clothes? Kids are especially conscious of their style and how it reflects their personality. In the wide variety of kids medical bracelets offered by N-Style ID, you are sure to find bracelets to suit your child’s unique character.
Do you have a child who is wild about sports? N-Style ID has a great selection of medical alert bracelets made with active children in mind. Check out our Sport Kids Medical Bands covered with soccer balls, basketballs, footballs, and baseballs. If your kid is into car racing, we even have a Speed Racer Medical ID Band with a design of checkers and race cars. Or perhaps your child wants a bracelet to coordinate with his or her sports uniform. N-Style ID has bands in various colors, including blue, red, purple, pink, and black.
For parents with a child living with diabetes, back to school time can be stressful because it means handing responsibility for the child’s diabetes management to school staff. However, this time need not be so stressful for parents. There are a number of ways that parents can help to assure their child’s safety at school.
The most important step is to gather the necessary information needed by the school staff for them to properly manage the child’s individual diabetes needs. The American Diabetes Association offers a Diabetes Medical Management Plan (DMMP) document to be filled out by the student’s personal diabetes healthcare team, which includes parents. The plan would be given to relevant school personnel, such as the school nurse, to review and keep in their records.
Our last blog highlighted the importance for people with certain conditions to wear medical alert jewelry. The potentially fatal consequence of not wearing a medical ID signals a need for personal and community-based awareness campaigns. You, as an individual, can play an important part in spreading this important message.
There are a number of ways to approach a campaign to spread awareness of the importance of wearing medical alert jewelry. The first step to any awareness campaign is research and planning. You will have to decide whether to focus on one particular condition--diabetes or epilepsy, for instance--or to focus on the topic of medical ID jewelry in general. Research the condition(s) to make certain you have the facts straight. Statistics on the issue will help communicate your message more effectively.
