Post-Exposure Follow-Up for Podiatry Students

Students, who in the course of their clinical experiences or laboratory work, experience a needle stick injury or occupational exposure should contact the 24-hour needle stick hotline maintained by the University Health Service: 216.368.6635.

The student should notify the Clinician in the clinic as well as Dr. Robinson who will talk with the source patient and get the necessary lab work done. Dr. Robinson will discuss source patient lab results with the student.

The University Health Service can provide ongoing information and advice following the acute incident.

If the injury occurs at The Richmond Heights General Hospital: Report to the Emergency Room at the hospital for care.
