On-the-job Injuries and Illness

If a UTH-HSC employee incurs an injury/illness that appears to be life-threatening, the person reporting the incident should immediately contact The University of Texas Police Department (UTPD) at 713-794-4357 and provide the dispatcher with:

his or her name;
his or her location;
name of the injured/ill person;
type of the injury/illness, if known;
special directions regarding the situation

Unless otherwise requested or indicated, the injured/ill employee should be transported by ambulance to the appropriate health care facility.

If the incident specifically involves an injury to a UTHSC-H employee, the employee's supervisor must prepare a Supervisor's First Report of Injury form as soon as possible.

If a UTHSC-H employee experiences symptoms of a non-life threatening illness, the name of the employee's personal physician should be obtained, then that physician should be contacted for directions on how to deal with the situation. If the ill employee has no personal physician, the employee may be directed to U.T. Health Services (713-500-3267) or to an emergency treatment center.

For more detailed information regarding Medical Emergencies, Minor Injuries/Illnesses, refer to The Handbook of Operating Procedures - Chapter 18, Safety and Health or the Environmental Health & Safety Office Web site.

HCPC employees should contact their supervisor who will prepare a Supervisor’s First Report of Injury form for any job Injury/Illness at UTH-HSC Harris County Psychiatric Center. Any questions may be directed to the HCPC Safety Office at 713-741-7880 or Legal Affairs and Risk Management at 713-500-3268.
