Clinical Injuries/Illness

Students injured during clinical and need immediate attention should be taken to the Emergency Services for care. Any expense that is incurred is the student's responsibility.  If the injury does not need immediate attention, the student should see their own physician. Students are responsible for carrying their own health insurance.  Faculty are required to complete an Incident Report, http://www.lakeviewcol.edu/incident_report/form, for Lakeview as well as the clinical agency where the accident occurred.

Needlestick Injury
Needlestick or any other injuries are required to be reported and investigated by the agency (where the incident occurred). When a needlestick occurs, the student should be taken to the nearest emergency room.  The emergency room's policy/procedure on needlestick injuries should be followed.  Any expense that is incurred is the student's responsibility. 

In addition to the clinical sites procedure the Lakeview College of Nursing’s form, http://www.lakeviewcol.edu/incident_report/form is required to be completed. In case of an emergency, members of the College community will be transported by car or ambulance to the nearest appropriate facility.
