University Police Emergencies Procedures Guide

Medical Emergency

If Someone Becomes Ill or Injured.

  • Call 911 immediately. Non-emergency injuries should be reported to University Police at 964-4141.
  • Do not move the injured or ill person unless it is a life-threatening situation.
  • Try to make him/her comfortable, if possible.
  • Unless qualified to provide first aid, do not attempt to render any first aid. Seek someone who is qualified.
  • Use personal protective equipment (gloves) when exposing yourself to bodily fluids (e.g., blood, vomit).
  • Comfort the ill or injured person and reassure him/her that medical attention is on the way. 
  • If necessary, implement appropriate emergency procedure (e.g. Evacuation of Classroom/Area) to ensure that community members are not exposed to trauma or danger.

After the ill or injured person(s) immediate needs have been taken care of, remain to assist medical services with pertinent information about the incident.

Preserve the scene of the medical emergency in the event the incident will require an investigation by police.
