TRANSPORTATION OF SICK OR INJURED INDIVIDUALS

CSUS does not have available equipment, and does not accept financial responsibility, for transportation of sick or injured individuals from the campus to facilities elsewhere in the community. In the case of illness or injury occurring on campus, a Public Safety Officer will transport the individual from the site to the Student Health Center if the individual's condition makes this action appropriate.  If an emergency exists or the patient has compromised mobility, the officer at the scene will make the decision to call an ambulance to transport the individual (at his/her own expense) to a hospital.

Public Safety Officers responding to an emergency call on campus during regular hours (8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m., Monday-Friday) may consult with Health Center personnel when there is concern about the decision regarding transportation of the individual.  Contact with the Student Health Center will be made through already established channels according to procedures now in existence.

Members of staff or faculty who provide transportation of sick or injured students to an off- campus destination do so at their own risk.  The University does not provide liability coverage for such activities
