I have always felt extremely embittered against the private hospitals that refused to admit me in the “golden hour” immediately after my accident in 1996. How could they dare to refuse me, especially since I had one of the best medical aids available at that time?
...BUT WHY?...
...As a result I was taken to the closest provincial hospital where I was admitted as an unknown
“Foxtrot patient”, i.e. immediately declared as Brain-Dead based on my brain injuries being too severe to justify any attention/treatment ...
... with this being NORMALLY equivalent to a Death Certificate ... already Signed and Sealed ... almost 100% Guaranteed! ... ESPECIALLY with the vast period of brain bleeding I've had to experience/encounter, without ANY medical attention given to me before the following day ... and being ONLY THEN operated for a cracked skull and severe brain haemorrhage ...
YET what an AWESOME God we are serving that I'm still Alive Iconand able to testify to God's Glory years afterwards!

In 2002, however, I came to realize that through what happened to me … I became the Mentor and case study for the development of CrisisOnCall, an identification system that talks on behalf of members when they can't, which continues to save hundreds of South African lives on a daily basis.
Praise the Lord for working in His mysterious ways; Revealed to us only in His Perfect Time!

If you are unconscious in an accident, will my medical aid fund do the necessary?

Carte Blanche - “Your card or your life” (9 November 2003)
In this program the following was debated: “What happens if you require medical treatment? Can your medical aid speak for you when you cannot? And the result was: Carte Blanche discovers that in some cases the absence of a medical aid card or information may mean that you forfeit your life

Paramedics all agree that the CrisisOnCall system is one of the best inventions to save a life:

“I write this letter as motivation to anyone that thinks that they do not need an identification system. On many accident scenes information is the big question. Who are these people? How will we notify their family? To which hospital do we take them – state or private hospital? Every day we ask these questions and take decisions accordingly.”

What does CrisisOnCall offers you and your family:

A national toll free number service where we take control of your crisis.

A unique, effective, professionally developed, identification system that provides access to critical information and that “talk” on your behalf when you can’t. (24 Hour availability of essential lifesaving information) this is the most comprehensive system of its kind anywhere in the world.

Since time can determine life or death, CrisisOnCall always use the nearest available private service provider and also pay for the service to the doors of the hospital. (This apply irrespective of your status as medical aid member or not)

When you or your family travel, they could be monitored regularly to ascertain whether everything is running smoothly.(The traveler will be contacted on a regular base by CrisisOnCall.)

For as little as R 87.00 per month (Alpha option ) you and your family can be assured that we will take care of your crisis 24/7/365. This amount also includes medical advice, telephonic trauma counseling, legal assistance, etc.

Contact CrisisOnCall at Telephone logo (012) 335 3776 or send an e-mail message e-Mail logo for link to CrisisOnCall for more information. Please mention that Mentor Cornelia referred you.

These points are what make CrisisOnCall different and unique. No person in South Africa can be without it!
