Emergency Care

In the event of a medical or life-threatening emergency, the RN staff will notify Public Safety who will call for an ambulance. Ambulances arecalled based on the RN's evaluation of the patient's condition. If the individual is in Health Services' office, the ambulance will arrive at the rear/emergency entrancetoHS-100. This allows ambulance personnel immediate access to the patient and a rapid exit from the campus. It also ensures privacyfor the patient. If the patient is elsewhere on campus, the ambulance will arrive at the location which gives them the best access. Prior to the arrival of the ambulance, RN staff will stabilize the patient, administer oxygen if needed, notify family/friends if requested,and prepare the patient for transport.
