b. Assess WCI participants the appropriate fee(s). (Note: Participants receiving academic credit pay regular student fees and are therefore eligible for health services without paying additional fee.)
c. Orient WCI directors regarding the health services available at the Hudson Health Center, emergency transportation services, and emergency room services at O'Bleness Memorial Hospital.
d. Provide the Director of Medical Services with a list (updated as indicated) of the workshops, conferences, and institutes that are to be held on the Athens Campus, including names of the WCI programs and their directors, the dates of the activities, and the approximate number of participants. (The updated lists should be submitted at least one week before the WCI program begins.) P> e. Implement a program whereby all participants in all WCI programs are provided with a badge, card, or other form of identification which will be used to identify the bearer/wearer as a WCI participant eligible for health services at the time they are sought at the Hudson Health Center.
f. Provide the appropriate information that will enable the R.A. system to report the amount of monies generated through WCI health services. (The Controller's Office should be contacted for proper accounting procedures.)
(b) At all times when the Hudson Health Center is closed, emergency medical services are available (on a fee-for service basis) in the Emergency Room of O Bleness Memorial Hospital. The workshop fee does not cover treatment received at any facility other than Hudson Health Center.
(c) Ambulance transportation is available with charge, from SEOMS (Southeast Ohio Emergency Medical Services) at 1-800-282-7777.
(d) Those involved with and/or responsible for WCI participants are reminded that some participants health problems involve public health concerns. Therefore, participants who are ill and/or injured should be assisted in obtaining the health services noted above rather than the responsibility for care being assumed by Residence Hall or WCI staff.
Accurate records for each participant reporting health problems, requesting health services, and/or reporting health problems but declining treatment to Residence Hall or WCI staff should be maintained by staff responsible for those programs. These records should include: name, age, local and home address, date and a description of program affiliation, complaints and/or symptoms reported. The residence hall staff/WCI program staff will provide appropriate information according to the circumstances involved in a timely manner to the Housing Office and the Workshops Office.
