The Student Health Center is not appropriately staffed nor equipped as an Emergency Room. Injuries sustained by patients involved in a Motor Vehicle Accident/Crash should first be evaluated through a local Emergency Room (ER) where appropriate imaging studies, if felt indicated by the ER provider, may be obtained and interpreted. Patients presenting to the Student Health Center that have sustained injuries from a motor vehicle related incident who have not first been evaluated through the ER will be advised to seek care through a local Emergency Room.
