Medical and First Aid

  1. In case of serious injury or illness on campus, immediately call University Police at 9-1-1, or use emergency phone. Do not move a seriously injured person unless they are in further danger. Give your name, describe the nature of the problem and the location of the victim. University Dispatchers will notify Emergency Response Personnel. Police Officers are trained in CPR and First Aid.
  2. Quickly perform these four steps:
    • Determine welfare of victim by asking, "Are you okay," and "What is wrong?"
    • If victim is unconscious, check pulse and breathing and give CPR or artificial respiration if necessary.
    • Control serious bleeding by direct pressure and elevation of the wound.
    • Keep victim still and comfortable; have them lie down if necessary.
  3. For minor injuries or minor medical urgencies, employees should report to Campus Health Services if the injury or illness is minor but medical care is required. Employees may go to their private physician but they must let them know if the injury or illness is work-related. Supervisors must ensure that they or a co-worker accompany the injured or ill person to the medical care facility.
