Important Safety Information for Students:

Fire Safety:
As a student, you have joined the health care delivery team. Should you see a fire, you can be the one to pull any victims out of it. Hospitals have fire alarms like many other places, but please remove any burning victims out of the fire before leaving to sound the alarm. After the alarm is raised, you may contain fires by closing doors to prevent further spread. After the patients are rescued, the alarm is activated, and the fire is contained, you may attempt to extinguish the fire by aiming the spray at the base of the flames. The likelihood of encountering a fire is low, but even as a student, it is time for you to take action within your scope of practice.

Needle-sticks: Sometimes medical students attempt procedures during their rotation. There will always be a risk of needle-stick injury. Each facility you work at will have different procedures. At DGMC, the policy is to immediately inform your supervisor and report to the Emergency Department, located on Level 2 (2nd floor) of the facility. Appropriate paperwork will be provided there, as well as the needed investigation, wound care, and any recommended prophylaxis.
