Limitations and Scope of Care

The Student Health Center provides medical care for a wide variety of ailments and injuries. The Center is not prepared or equipped for management of acute, life and limb threatening emergencies. The Health Center is to provide healthcare for those conditions that are not of a life-threatening nature. If such life-threatening conditions exist, the student is to be immediately transferred to a hospital. 

At the point where such urgent matters are identified, the arrangement would be made for immediate transfer to a hospital acute care facility. All effort would be made to expedite transport to a nearby emergency room and to minimize unnecessary delays at the Student Health Center.
