Medical Amnesty

Do the right thing: call for help

If a friend is experiencing a medical emergency from drinking too much, consuming a drug, or any other reason, you should call for help.  On campus, call Public Safety and off campus, call 9-1-1.

Stay with your friend and answer any questions that the responders have. By doing so, you are being a good friend, a good member of the University community, and may have some protections from University and legal penalties.

While this video is from Purdue, the information about the Medical Amnesty policy is the same as here at USI.

This policy is outlined in the Code of Student Behavior, under 2.0.2 Medical Amnesty.
