Student Risk Management Handbook
Campus Safety, Continuity, and Risk Management
RMUoHP complies with the Safe and Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act. This policy is included in various campus handbooks (including student, faculty, and staff handbooks). Annually, RMUoHP reports crime and arrest statistics, as required by the Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act of 1990 and the Clery Act. Click here to view the current campus safety and crime report. Additionally, the University provides to all employees and students detailed Employee and Student Risk Management Handbooks.
In case of emergency, a student should immediately dial 911 and report the emergency to a University employee. In all buildings, for minor incidents or major cardiac emergencies, the University has available a first aid kit and an automated external defibrillator. While on campus, any student, employee, or guest of the University that requires emergency medical attention may have the required care summoned from local resources at the discretion of the employee(s). Students assume responsibility for their healthcare and the financial responsibility for any required medical, dental, or mental health assistance. Therefore, in non-emergency situations, students are encouraged to seek healthcare providers covered via his or her insurance policy. In all cases, involved students must complete an Incident Form available from the University’s Safety Officer.
The University is conveniently located by a regional hospital (Utah Valley Regional Medical Center;http://intermountainhealthcare.org/hospitals/uvrmc/Pages/home.aspx) that provides comprehensive services. The University provides a listing of additional medical, dental, and mental health resources on the Student Services link of the University website. While the listings represent a portion of facilities within a reasonable proximity to the University and its students, the listings do not indicate the University’s recommendation for any particular facility or provider. Students are both responsible for selecting quality healthcare providers and, as previously stated, paying all costs associated with his or her healthcare. To ensure insurance coverage, a student should first contact his or her insurance company for a list of covered facilities and receive care at an appropriate facility.
For assistance with non-emergency healthcare-related questions, students may contact Student Services at [email protected] or 801.375.5125.
For additional information on emergencies plans and services, students may also reference the University’s Student Risk Management Handbook or Annual Campus Safety and Crime Report, available through the Vice President of Administration.
