If you experience an injury while on placement, please follow the steps below:
- Alert your supervisor/preceptor and seek medical assistance as required. You should visit the Occupational Health, Safety & Wellness Department during their business hours or go to the Emergency Department after hours and identify yourself as a learner.
- Complete an Employee/Affiliate incident report (SLIP) on eric (NYGH’s intranet) with the help of your preceptor/supervisor. A link to the form is available on all NYGH computers. If you cannot access the form with your login, you can submit it anonymously.
- You may also need to fill out your academic institution’s incident report form.
- Collaborate with your supervisor/preceptor to negotiate your return to placement as required.
