Treatment Protocol / Travel Letters are extremely useful tools for members of the bleeding disorders community.

With security at airports tightening travel letters are becoming more and more important. A well-written travel letter can often prevent undue delays and frustrations if presented to the security responsible.

On occasions when you may be going to a different hospital than normal, a treatment protocol letter can dramatically speed up the time it takes to be seen and treated. A treatment protocol letter basically acts as standing orders from your physician telling others what needs to be done.

Infusion logs are irreplaceable tools that truly make handling a bleeding disorder much easier. There are various benefits to you, your doctor and your insurance company and/or payor.

Most payors now require infusion logs be kept in order to ensure that the recipient is in fact using the factor they are paying for and their money is being spent wisely.

These logs can also provide you and your doctor valuable insight into the triggers of bleeding episodes that may not have been apparent at the time of the bleed. By looking at your logs over time you can see trends that may correlate to the time of year, day of the week or month, and even certain activities. Knowing these triggers ahead of time can help stop future bleeds with preventative treatments or slight changes in routine.

This authorization form can allow a child to be treated without the parent or guardian present. Lets face it, we cannot be right beside our children 24/7/365. Having one of these forms filled out can, in most cases, ensure that your child can receive the treatment they need at a hospital or anywhere else a babysitter, grandparent, coach, etc. takes him or her.

Simply fill this form out (for your convenience you can insert most of the information right on your computer), sign it in front of a Notary Public, and give a copy to whoever will be watching your child.

It is probably a good idea to give that same person a Treatment Protocol Letter to accompany the authorization form. This way they have one document telling them how to treat your child and a second one authorizing them to treat.
