6.4.1.2 Students, Visitors, and Other Non-Employed Personnel

Campus persons, who are involved in activities for which they are not paid and suffer an injury requiring emergency medical treatment (e.g. chemical exposure), should seek treatment at either the Provena Covenant Medical Center or Carle Foundation Hospital emergency rooms. Students may also seek basic medical care at the McKinley Health Center or with their personal physician. However, all unpaid persons may also go to the emergency rooms in this case. Costs associated with most injuries incurred during these activities are the responsibility of the individual through their personal insurance or student insurance.

If a person suffers an injury during activities for which they are not paid, a Public Injury / Property Damage Report should be completed. These reports should be completed regardless of where the injury occurred or whether the person received medical follow-up.

A report can be filed by filling out the Public Injury / Property Damage Report located at: http://www.obfs.uillinois.edu/common/pages/DisplayFile.aspx?itemId=917317
