When I was growing up we didn’t call it “Political Correctness”.  We called it things like “manners”, “respect” and “the Golden Rule”. ~~~ Peter

"Why aren’t you wearing your medical I.D?"

Dr. Alfred Sacchetti, a member of the American College of Emergency Physicians, told the Journal that he often encounters patients in the E.R. with complex medical conditions who say they were never told by their physicians that they should wear a medical I.D. bracelet. He warns:

“Anyone with a medical condition that would not be obvious to medics or doctors if they were unable to communicate should consider some form of medical identification program.”
