Medical Emergencies


What is a medical emergency?

•    Serious injury or illness.  

What do I do if there is a medical emergency occurring or one has occurred?

•    Call 911. Paramedics and ambulance service will be notified immediately.
•    Stay, or have someone else stay, with the patient until help arrives.  
•    Do not move the patient; keep the patient still and comfortable.
•    Stay out of the way unless assistance is requested once help arrives.

This should be done regardless of whether the individual is an employee, student or visitor.

What information will I be asked when reporting a medical emergency?

•    Where is aid needed?
•    What type of problem, individual’s condition?
•    What is the medical history, if known?
•    What happened (sequence of events)?
