Policy: 

Counseling & Psychological Services (CAPS) follows the emergency procedures of the Student Health Center (Please see Emergency Procedures and Policies under the Health and Safety Section of the Main Policy and Procedures Manual).  A few items specifically relevant to CAPS are detailed below:

  • Code Blue-In the event of a student medical emergency while at CAPS, staff are to press 44 on the telephone to access the pager system and call a Code Blue indicating the location.  This will result in a response by medical staff. Note that the pager system is not heard in all of CAPS.
  • Dr. Slug-In the event a staff member needs physical back-up that does not require calling the police, staff are to press 44 on the telephone to access the pager system and call for Dr. Slug indicating the location.  This will result in a “show of force” from managers present in the Student Health Center.
  • CAPS offices are outfitted with silent alarms.  In the event a staff member is feeling physical threatened, pressing the silent alarm will result in a call to campus police, who will respond immediately.
  • If CAPS staff require back-up from other CAPS staff, they are to call the CAPS Front Desk, at 9-2628, and say they would like to cancel their appointment with Dr. Arnold.  The front desk staff will then contact available CAPS personnel to respond. For staff who are at one of the colleges, front desk staff should ask if the police are needed.  If the answer is yes, front desk will call the police and inform them where to respond.
