I'm organizing the racing club trip down to Austin this weekend, and my buddy and his wife can't make it so I've volunteered to take their boy, age 13, who's a good kid and a junior racer.

So:

Med / ER people - I need some sort of release / authorization in case he gets hurt, right? What do I need? I'll have a copy of his insurance card.

Law types: same question.

thanks

I would recommend printing a medical release form off of the internet and have your friends fill it out and have it notarized.

If he gets hurt, just dump him at the hospital ER and take off. No use getting sucked into a lot of paperwork and uncomfortable questions. Medical personnel recommend that if you are going to do this, and he can't talk, pin his name and a contact number to his clothes. And mark whichever limb is damaged with an 'X' so they don't amputate the wrong one.

Health Care Proxy. Differs from state to state, but some sort of statement/release from his parents that you are authorized to act on his behalf, receive confidential medical information, and make medical decisions.

Copy of medical card works too. Just be aware, no matter what you do, it is up to the treating party to accept it.
