This alert highlights the importance of all patients who are on life-saving medication to have a care plan. A care plan is a way to share important medical and medication information, as well as steps to take in an emergency. One case is described of a patient with adrenal insufficiency and on high-dose corticosteroids whose treatment was delayed because of lack of a care plan. The alert provides advice for persons who depend on life-saving medications.
