The Ready to Go form is used to provide necessary medical and contact information for individuals in OPWDD operated and/or certified programs brought to the hospital or other health care facility, for scheduled, urgent, or emergent medical care. This form is a valuable tool which provides important and current information based on the specific needs of the individual who is to be receiving care. This form accompanies a packet of information (usually kept in a folder or binder) which goes with the individual when they go to the health care facility providing scheduled, urgent, or emergent care.
If you are preparing a Ready to Go packet for a Willowbrook class member, utilize the Ready to Go check list with the Ready to Go packet. Prior to taking a Willowbrook class member to the hospital, please make sure this check list of information is complete.
In a life-threatening situation, please ensure that the individual is provided appropriate care and is transported as quickly as possible to the emergency room.
