Student Medical/Health Crisis Protocols

An event is considered a student medical/health crisis when the health of a student is threatened. Such emergencies include medical emergencies, substance abuse or overdose, infectious disease outbreak, and hazardous substance release.

Since any campus community member may be the first campus person contacted directly by a person in crisis, the following outline is meant to assist in understanding possible steps to deal with the crisis. The procedures listed below should be modified to fit each situation and the abilities/responsibilities of the person or office providing the assistance.

Each area of student medical crisis and the protocol is below.
