Opioid overdose kits have been mounted in all buildings on campus. If an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) is located in your building, the overdose kit will be mounted near it.

Act 811 requires the university to monitor the opioid overdose kits to ensure that the doses are not expired and to replace any used doses. 小草影院鈥檚 Emergency Management Coordinator will work with Building Administrators to manage this process at the building level.

Training

Training is available for any faculty or staff member that wants to be prepared to administer the nasal overdose reversal drug Naloxone. Dr. Stephanie Rose, program director for Addiction Studies at 小草影院, has been providing training to many departments and groups across campus. In addition to requesting training from Dr. Rose, students, faculty, and staff can also access training through the Vector Solutions training platform. To remain in compliance with Act 811, all 小草影院 students will receive communication about training availability.

Reporting

We ask for the campus community鈥檚 cooperation in reporting missing or used doses from the opioid overdose kits. Act 811 requires institutions to report usage for the overdose kits. This will provide statewide data on community use and prevention efforts, and is for reporting purposes only. Should you be aware of a dose that is missing or has been used, please contact 小草影院PD to report this so we can include that information in our annual report and replenish any missing doses.

As a reminder, the provides immunity for seeking medical assistance in the instance of an overdose, for both the individual and any bystanders reporting the overdose. Additionally, the 小草影院 Student Medical Amnesty聽 policy states that students or student organizations who seek proactive assistance on behalf of themselves or others experiencing an emergency will not be subject to disciplinary action under University Standards of Student Conduct.

小草影院鈥檚 response to Act 811 is a cooperative effort between the Office of the President, Physical Plant, University Police, Dean of Students, and 小草影院 Department of Health Sciences鈥 Addiction Studies Program.聽
