Who’s Your I.C.E?
Catholic Medical Center’s primary care practices announce a public service effort to promote safety through wearing in case of emergency (I.C.E.) identification wristbands.
In an effort to promote safety throughout the community, CMC’s primary care practices have announced they will underwrite the cost for 1,000 individuals to customize an “in case of emergency” (I.C.E.) identification wristband via the CMC website.
This campaign is a result of a desire to reduce the number of patients who enter in to the hospital emergency rooms without proper identification. You may not always take your identification with you, but you should always have some form of personal identification for emergency medical situations.
The I.C.E. wristbands are customized with your name, contact information and any medical or health conditions you would need someone to know in an emergency medical situation. The hospital has created a dedicated website for individuals to go online and customize their unique IC.E wristband. “CMC’s primary care doctors are focused on delivering the highest level of quality care. Providing opportunities for improving the health and safety of our patients is important in our role as primary care providers and we are vested in increasing awareness for wearing proper identification at all times” said Dr. Keith Stahl Medical Director of CMC’s Primary Care Practices. This is a type of “best-practice” that could be life saving.”
For over 100 years, CMC has been fulfilling its mission of providing health, healing and hope to the people of NH. Our commitment to improving the health and well-being of our community extends throughout the programs and services we provide. “This campaign exemplifies this dedication and we hope the public will respond by going online and ordering their personalized I.C.E. wristband.
