2625 (A) Emergency Care


.110 General Information

.111 Health emergency procedures for buildings where nursing stations are located are established by the EHS nurse, in conjunction with building and/or agency management and various health and safety committees. Written health emergency procedures should be prominently posted, and employees encouraged to become familiar with them. Procedures should be reviewed and recirculated every six months.

.112 Location—EHS nursing stations (see 2610(B)).

.113 For assistance in setting up or reviewing health emergency procedures, contact the appropriate EHS nursing station.

.114 Agencies in Albany that are serviced by the State Police should dial "911" in all emergency situations and the police will notify the nurse when the emergency is health related.

.115 To obtain emergency care in the absence of a prearranged procedure, call the nearest EHS nursing station. The caller should provide the following information to the nurse: name of victim, exact location, and pertinent information regarding the victim's condition.


.410 Arrangements

.411 When an employee is in acute distress, it is vital that the EHS nurse as well as emergency responders be contacted immediately. Employees should call “911” or its equivalent first, and then call the EHS nurse. The EHS nurse is qualified to:

  • provide basic life support to a person in cardiac/respiratory arrest, including defibrillation, and/or care for both serious and minor health emergencies;
  • determine what further services are needed.
