Emergency Procedures for Accidents and Acute Illness

In life-threatening situations, dial 911.
Give the nature and exact location of the accident or medical emergency! DO NOT MOVE THE VICTIM, unless to prevent further injury!

For non-life-threatening situations, contact the Student Health Center (x6346).
A Registered Nurse is on duty 9:00-5:00, Monday-Thursday. When the RN is not available or the Student Health Center is closed, call 289-6486. NOTE:Basic First Aid is available from Campus Police when the Student Health Center is closed.

Please report ALL student college-related injuries, as soon as possible to the Student Health Center.
The instructor or person in charge shall make a written report of the injury. Accident report forms are available at the Student Health Center, the Evening Dean's office, or from Campus Police, they are also available on line.

Accident reports are essential to process Insurance claims. Once an accident report is received that requires an Insurance Claim, the student will be given information about the college's insurance coverage and the billing procedures. They will be referred through the Health Center to the appropriate medical resource. DO NOT GO WITHOUT THE CLAIM FORM.  There is a deductible for all accidents that are college related. The regular deductible is $50.00. If the accident occurs during an athletic game than the deductible is: $100.00

An injury resulting due to a chronic disease ( diabetes, epilepsy etc. ) is not covered by the college insurance, but it still needs to be reported to the Student Health Center!
