Protocols for accidents and incidents:

Policy for a Fainting or Falling Event

One person should assume the role of leader and follow these procedures:

  1. Keep the person flat on the floor and encourage him or her to stay still.
  2. Make sure the person is warm and comfortable.
  3. Call 911. When the paramedics arrive, they will assume responsibility for the person’s care.
  4. Fill out an incident report.

Policy for a Seizure

One person should assume the role of leader and follow these procedures:

  1. Stay calm.
  2. Look around - is the person in a dangerous place?  If not, don't move them. Move objects like furniture away from them.
  3. Note the time the seizure starts.
  4. Stay with them. If they don't collapse but seem blank or confused, gently guide them away from any danger. Speak quietly and calmly.
  5. Cushion their head with something soft if they have collapsed to the ground.
  6. Don't hold them down.
  7. Don't put anything in their mouth.
  8. Check the time again. If a convulsive (shaking) seizure doesn't stop after 5 minutes, call 911.

Please fill out an incident report.

Policy for Cleaning up Bodily Fluids

In the event that bodily fluids are left on any surface:

  1. Do not touch them.
  2. Use gloves and a solution of 1 part bleach and 2 parts water to clean the area.
  3. Gather all cleaning materials and gloves into a sealable bag and throw them away.
