Local Emergency Numbers

If you are experiencing a medical emergency on campus, dial 911 immediately.

Then, please call Campus Police at x5911 (405-208-5911). For non-emergencies, you can contact Campus Police at x5001 (405-208-5001)

If you are experiencing a medical emergency off campus, please dial 911.

If you are sick or injured, but it is not an emergency, please call Family Healthcare and Minor Emergency Clinic at 405-373-2400 for an appointment. We are usually able to get you in to see someone the same day you call.

Medical Emergency means a sudden onset of a condition with acute symptoms requiring immediate medical care and includes such conditions as heart attacks, cardiovascular accidents, poisonings, loss of consciousness or respiration, convulsions, or other such acute medical conditions. An illness or injury that you have had for 1 day or more is not an emergency.

Medical Emergency Response on the OCU Campus

A medical emergency is defined as the sudden onset of one or more of the following:

  • loss of consciousness
  • shortness of breath
  • acute change in behavior such as confusion
  • uncontrolled bleeding
  • acute pain
  • complaint of chest pain

If any person on campus is complaining of any of these, call 911 immediately! Do not hesitate. Take action, even if in doubt! Start CPR if the person is not breathing and has no pulse! Have someone get the nearest AED immediately!

The OCU Police Dept. will come to your location to assist you and assist local emergency responders in finding your location.

The first community emergency responders to arrive on campus will probably be the Fire Department. Most firemen are trained as Paramedics or EMT’s.

The ambulance (EMSA) will generally arrive after the Fire Department. Response time may be as little as 3 to 5 minutes since OCU is located very close to 2 fire stations.

It is absolutely free for community emergency responders to come to the University. There is no charge or penalty to the University!

Ambulance personnel will provide minor injury care at no charge if the patient is not experiencing a medical emergency.

If the person is unconscious, having difficulty breathing or chest pain, is bleeding profusely, is in severe pain, or is medically unstable, the paramedics will assess, stabilize, and transport the person to a local hospital. The patient is charged only if transported to a hospital.

The Family Healthcare and Minor Emergency Clinic at OCU is open 8:00 am-5:30 pm Monday-Friday.

Nurses are not trained as first responders, and are not equipped as such.

If there is a true medical emergency, contact 911 as described above immediately!

If not a medical emergency, but medical assistance is indicated, contact OCUPD at 5001 to request assistance to bring the patient to the health clinic during operating hours.

An injured or ill person who can stand and is alert should be brought to the clinic for treatment. This is the best place to provide care for reasons of privacy as well as availability of supplies. The student health clinic is located in the west wing of Kramer West, School of Nursing.

The Family Healthcare and Minor Emergency Clinic at OCU will coordinate all public health emergencies, including pandemic or viral illnesses, potentially problematic skin infections (such as MRSA) or others as identified.
