The RN staff of Health Services provides medical care, emergency first-aid and emergency response to all members of the BCC community. Students, staff, faculty and visitors can expect prompt, personal attention in a private, confidential office setting.Individuals seek medical assistance for sprains, strains, burns, lacerations, allergic reactions, headaches and many types of injuries. Those who require blood pressure or blood sugar monitoring also visit us regularly.
In the event of potentially life-threatening symptoms, such as chest pain, severe abdominal pain, respiratory distress, loss of consciousness, RN staff will call an ambulance. RNs will stabilize the patient with supportive measures such as oxygen administration while waiting for the paramedics to arrive.
RN staff also responds to medical emergencies on campus, including seizures, fainting, falls and injuries which prevent the individual from reaching our office. Wheelchair transportation back to our office is provided, or, if necessary, an ambulance is called to the site.
Athletes who play on the BCC sports teams come to HS-100 for their required physical exams, prior to their playing season. The college physician will only clear athletes for sports participation who have a medical exam on file in this office. A recent medical exam by the athlete's private physician must be submitted PRIOR to being examined by the college physician. Medical Exam form
