Sometimes, despite your best efforts to avoid your allergens, you collide with them out of the blue and you need to find the nearest hospital.
In addition to the many other emergency management features the Allergy Force app offers to help you safely navigate an allergic reaction (like 911 calling, like emergency contact notification with a map of your location, like a reaction response guide with your own doctor's instructions), the app also offers a Hospital Finder.
The Hospital Finder will help you find the nearest open Hospital/ER. You can call before you go, as well as get directions from your current location.
Here’s a step-by-step overview of how to use the Hospital Finder:
Tap the '+' symbol at the bottom of the 'Home Page' to expand the navigation bar. Tap 'Hospital' in the lower right corner.
You will land on a screen with a map that pinpoints the locations of the nearest emergency medical facilities.
Results are organized nearest first.
Tap 'Phone' to call the facility before you go.
Tap 'Directions' to get directions.
Set your mode of transportation, e.g., car, walking, then tap 'Go' and follow the directions to the medical facility.
Best results will be delivered for locations where English is the common language.
Results spanning a body of water may need to be further refined by driving distance. Tap 'Driving Distance' in the upper right hand corner of the Hospital Finder screen to re-sort results by driving distance. Be patient for results to display.
