Responding to a Medical Emergency

In the event of a medical emergency, call 911 from any phone on campus to contact University Police. Tell the dispatcher where you are and answer any other questions they might have. The campus police dispatcher will send the appropriate personnel.

Some examples of a medical emergency are: excessive bleeding, broken bones, loss of consciousness, or severe chest pains. When in doubt about the severity of a medical emergency, always dial 911 from any phone to contact the police.

Employees in these situations often minimize the extent of their injury or try to refuse treatment. Be firm in requiring a medical evaluation. Do not allow employees in these situations to leave campus until University Police have responded. Please wait to complete any injury/illness reporting forms until after the emergency has been resolved.
