The Health Center staff encourages students to notify parents/guardians of their medical emergency or hospital visit. If a student is referred to the hospital by Student Health Center staff, he or she is offered a "Release of Health Information" form to sign to authorize disclosure of health information to parents/guardians. There are situations where the Student Health Center staff will contact the parents/emergency contacts directly (without a signed release) including:
- If the student is a minor (in accordance with State and Federal laws)
- If the student is a danger to himself or others
- If the student's condition is critical to life safety
