Emergency Information

This guide is written to serve as a reference for all those who provide field coverage for practices and events of Capital University Athletics. It shall serve also as the primary tool for planned periodic review of such procedures so that all involved know what to do in the event of an emergency situation. Sport/facility specific plans may be found at the bottom of the page.

 

The Emergency Action Plan is set into motion when a serious or catastrophic injury occurs. A serious injury is one in which it is obvious that the student-athlete will need to be hospitalized and action taken must be immediate.

Examples of this are respiratory arrest, severe bleeding, obvious fracture, possible neck or back injury, or a serious head injury.

 

The plan calls for the following actions: 

  1. Athletic Trainer in charge (seniority, chain of command) attends to the injured student-athlete and evaluates the situation.
  2. Athletic Trainer in charge instructs another athletic trainer or coach to call 911 for help. Give the 911 operator the following information: name and title; nature of injuries to the student-athlete; and location of injured student-athlete. Caller should be the last person to hang up.
  3. Have someone meet the ambulance at the entrance to the stadium, gym, or other facilities.
  4. Call the Capital University Athletic Training Facility and inform a staff certified athletic trainer. If not present, notify the team physician and coach. If necessary, call parents and notify athletic department administration.

Emergency Action Plan

Capital University

Athletic Training

 

Introduction

Emergency situations may arise at any time during athletic events. Expedient action must be taken in order to provide the best possible care to the student-athletes of emergency and/or life threatening conditions. The development and implementation of an emergency plan will help ensure that the best care will be provided.

Athletic organizations have a duty to develop an emergency plan that may be implemented immediately when necessary and to provide appropriate standards of health care to all sports participants. As athletic injuries may occur at any time and during any activity, the sports medicine team must be prepared. This preparation involves formulation of an emergency plan, proper coverage of events, maintenance of appropriate emergency equipment and supplies, utilization of appropriate emergency medical personnel, and continuing education in the area of emergency medicine. Hopefully, through careful pre-participation physical screenings, adequate medical coverage, safe practice and training techniques and other safety avenues, some potential emergencies may be averted. However, accidents and injuries are inherent with sports participation, and proper preparation on the part of the sports medicine team will enable each emergency situation to be managed appropriately.

 

Components of the Emergency Plan

There are three basic components of this plan:

  1. Emergency personnel
  2. Emergency communication
  3. Emergency equipment

 

Emergency Plan Personnel

With athletic association practice and competition, the first responder to an emergency situation is typically a member of the sports medicine staff, most commonly a certified athletic trainer. A team physician may not always be present at every organized practice or competition. The type and degree of sports medicine coverage for an athletic event may vary widely, based on such factors as the sport or activity, the setting, and the type of training or competition. The first responder in some instances may be a coach or other institutional personnel. Certification in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), first aid, prevention of disease transmission, and emergency plan review is strongly recommended for all athletics personnel associated with practices, competitions, skills instruction, and strength and conditioning.

The development of an emergency plan cannot be complete without the formation of an emergency team.  The emergency team may consist of a number of healthcare providers including physicians, emergency medical technicians, certified athletic trainers; aided by (including but not limited to) athletic training students; coaches, athletic administrative staff and, quite possibly, bystanders. Roles of these individuals within the emergency team may vary depending on various factors such as the number of members of the team, the athletic venue itself, or at the direction of the assistant athletic director: medical services/head athletic trainer. The immediate tasks to accomplish include:

  1. Identification of emergency team leaders.
  2. Activate EMS and provide directions to EMS responders.
  3. Implement SOP care.

 

There are four basic goals within the emergency team. The first and most important role is immediate care of the student-athlete. Acute care in an emergency situation should be provided by the most qualified individual on the scene. Individuals with lower credentials should yield to those with more appropriate training. The second role, equipment retrieval, may be done by anyone on the emergency team who is familiar with the types and location of the specific equipment needed. Athletic training students, coaches and athletic administrators are good choices for this role. The third role,

EMS activation, may be necessary in situations where emergency transportation is not already present at the sporting event. This should be done as soon as the situation is deemed an emergency or a life-threatening event. Time is the most critical factor under emergency conditions. Activating the EMS system may be done by anyone on the team. However, the person chosen for this duty should be someone who is calm under pressure and who communicates well over the telephone. This person should also be familiar with the location and address of the sporting event. After EMS has been activated, the fourth role in the emergency team should be performed, that of directing EMS to the scene. One member of the team should be responsible for meeting emergency medical personnel as they arrive at the site of the contest (or other athletic event). Depending on ease of access, this person should have keys to any locked gates or doors that may slow the arrival of medical personnel. An athletic training student, coach or athletic administrator may be appropriate for this role.

 

Goals of the Emergency Team (as above)

  1. Immediate care of the student-athlete.
  2. Emergency equipment retrieval.
  3. Activate EMS Response.
  4. Team member meet and direct the EMS responders to the scene.

 

Activation of the Emergency Medical System

  1. Direction of EMS to scene
  2. Activating the EMS System
  3. Making the Call: 911 (from Hard-line phone) or Capital Public Safety Office 614-236-6666 (from Cell)

* PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THAT THE USE OF THE CELL PHONE TO ACTIVATE THE EMS SYSTEM MAY

NOT BE ANSWERED LOCALLY, THEREFORE, SPECIFIC DIRECTIONS TO SITE MUST BE GIVEN,

REGARDLESS OF HOW APPARENT THE LOCATION MIGHT BE.

Other telephone numbers for local police, fire department, and ambulance service should be available

 

Providing Information:

Information to be provided includes:

    1. Provide your name and title
    2. Address and location of situation
    3. Your telephone number
    4. The number of student-athletes involved
    5. The nature of the injury/situation and condition of the student-athlete(s) or involved individual
    6. First Aid treatment initiated by first responder(s)
    7. Specific directions as needed to locate the emergency scene (be very specific- i.e. northwest entrance to stadium, etc.)
    8. Any other information as requested by dispatcher
    9. REMAIN ON THE LINE UNTIL TOLD TO HANG-UP!

 

When forming the emergency team, it is important to adapt the team to each situation or sport. It may also be advantageous to have more than one individual assigned to each role. This allows the emergency team to function even though certain members may not always be present.

 

Emergency Communication (* Vital link in the chain of survival)

Communication is the key to quick delivery of advanced emergency care in athletic trauma situations. Athletic trainers and emergency medical personnel must work together to provide the best possible care to injured student-athletes. Communication prior to the event is a good way to establish boundaries and to build rapport between both groups of professionals. If emergency medical transportation is not available on-site during a particular sporting event then direct communication with the emergency medical system at the time of injury or illness is necessary. Access to a working telephone or other telecommunications device, whether fixed or mobile, should be assured. The communications system should be checked prior to each practice or competition to ensure proper working order. A back-up communication plan should be in effect should there be failure of the primary communication system (as in the case of the university phone system). The most common method of communication is a public telephone. However, a cellular phone is preferred if available. At any athletic venue, whether home or away, it is important to know the location of a workable telephone. Pre-arranged access to the phone should be established if it is not easily accessible.

 

Emergency Equipment

All necessary emergency equipment should be on-site and quickly accessible. Personnel should be familiar with the function and operation. The equipment should be in good operating condition, and personnel must be trained in the proper use. All equipment should be checked on a scheduled basis and its use rehearsed by personnel (especially the first responders). The emergency equipment available should be appropriate for the level of training for the emergency medical providers. Stay within your scope of practice.

It is important to know the proper manner to care for and store the equipment as well. Equipment should be stored in a clean and environmentally controlled area. It should be readily available when emergency situations arise.

 

Emergency equipment in the Capital University Intercollegiate Athletic environment includes:

*AED Stretchers

*Spine Board

*Vacuum Splints

*Crutches

*Immobilizers

 

Transportation

Emphasis is placed at having an ambulance on-site at high risk sporting events. EMS response time is additionally factored in when determining on-site ambulance coverage.

The Athletic administration and the Athletic Medical Staff should coordinate on-site ambulances for competition in football. Ambulances may be coordinated on-site for other special events/sports, such as major tournaments or OAC/NCAA regional or championship events. Consideration is given to the capabilities of transportation service available (i.e., Basic Life Support vs. Advanced Life Support) and the equipment and level of trained personnel on board the ambulance. In the event that an ambulance is on-site, there should be a designated location with rapid access to the site and a cleared route for entering/exiting the venue; verbal contact needs to be made with the EMS staff prior to the start of the event and preferred means of contact established (i.e. wave/high sign, radio (campus police), admin staff member). Also, there should be a mechanism in place whereby the venue is not left uncovered should the EMS unit need to make a transport.

In the emergency evaluation, the primary survey assists the emergency care provider in identifying emergencies requiring critical intervention and in determining transport decisions. In an emergency situation, the student-athlete should be transported by ambulance, where the necessary staff and equipment is available to deliver appropriate care. EMERGENCY CARE PROVIDERS SHOULD REFRAIN FROM TRANSPORTING UNSTABLE STUDENT-ATHLETES IN INAPPROPRIATE VEHICLES (i.e. personal or departmental vehicles). Care must be taken to ensure that the activity areas continued to be supervised should the emergency care provider leave the site in transporting the student-athlete (i.e. travel to the hospital with the injured student-athlete). Someone should accompany the student-athlete being transported, might that be an athletic training staff member, athletic administrator, or coach. Emergency contact information and insurance information should be provided to the EMS squad to facilitate care (i.e. using the Insurance Information Form).

 

Conclusion

The importance of being properly prepared when athletic emergencies arise cannot be stressed enough. A student-athlete's survival may hinge on how well trained and prepared athletic healthcare providers are. It is prudent to invest athletic department "ownership" in the emergency plan by involving the athletic administration and sport coaches as well as sports medicine personnel. The emergency plan should be reviewed at least once a year with all athletic personnel, along with CPR and first aid refresher training. Through development and implementation of the emergency plan, the Department of Intercollegiate Athletics helps ensure that the student-athlete will have the best care provided when an emergency situation does arise.
