What if I am not feeling well?
IF THE SITUATION IS LIFE-THREATENING, THEN 9-1-1 SHOULD BE CALLED, FOLLOWED BY A CALL TO THE DUTY OFFICER.
What do I do if I am not feeling well and need to go to Health Services?
During business hours a call should be placed to Health Services to determine the time in which the nursing staff can see you. If a medical condition prevents you from walking to Health Services, the duty officer can be contacted for transportation assistance.
After business hours, the on-call doctor system should be used. The doctor will provide advice on whether you should wait until the next business day to go to Health Services, whether you should be seen immediately at the emergency room of the local hospital, or if there is medical assistance the doctor can provide over the phone.
What do I do if I have a medical condition that makes it difficult to walk around campus?
Contact should be made with Health Services who will determine medical accommodations. In turn, Health Services will contact the Campus Safety Department with the needed information to provide parking accommodations or transportation needs.
What is a medical emergency?
A medical emergency is a medical situation in which the person feels that their condition will worsen before they can see a nurse at Health Services. In most cases, a medical emergency will involve the local rescue services who will respond on campus to access the situation.
Who do I contact if I am not feeling well?
If you are not feeling well, but it is not an emergency, you should visit Health Services in the Staunch Family Student Center.
Can I call 9-1-1?
You can call 9-1-1 directly. If you place a call directly to 9-1-1, call the duty officer immediately after the 9-1-1 call so that proper response is provided. If the situation is not immediately life threatening, then call the duty officer first to assist in the process.
