Emergency Action Plan
If an emergency situation arises during an athletic event, proper action must be taken in order to provide the best possible care to an athlete's emergency and/or life threatening situation.
The St. Thomas More Sports Medicine Team’s “Emergency Action Plan” is to make sure that our staff, equipment, and procedures and protocols are ready and prepared to ensure the best care is possible in an emergency situation.
This preparation involves formulation of an emergency plan, proper coverage of events, maintenance of medical emergency equipment, and utilization of appropriate medical emergency personnel. Through careful pre-participation physical screenings, safe practice and training techniques, and other safety avenues, some potential emergencies may be averted. Proper preparation of the athletic trainer and athletic staff should enable each emergency situation to be managed appropriately.
