Legal Documents for College Students

For those of you that have a young adult headed off to college…  Do you have the necessary documents in place in the event your college student has a medical emergency or needs help with his or her finances?

I know of a situation where the college student went away to college to a remote mid-west state.  He fell ill and ended up in the hospital.  His mom and dad were not able to get any information from the hospital or the doctors as to his health because he had never executed the appropriate document to give his mom or dad access to his personal health information.  Don’t let this happen to you!
