78 Health Professions Division 2018–2019 Parking Lot/Garage You are encouraged to use the parking areas designated for our students. You must obtain a parking decal from the One-Stop Shop in the Health Professions Division, the Horvitz Administration Building, or the Office of Student Affairs (at regional campuses) . Please keep in mind that the parking spaces adjacent to or in front of our building(s) are for administrators, visitors, and patients only. Parking in spaces other than those appropriated may result in a ticket violation or towing of the vehicle. Remember to lock your car everyday and park within the specified areas. Do not leave valuables in your vehicle. Courtesy and common sense in parking will avoid accidents, personal injuries, damage to your vehicle and to the vehicles of other students and employees. If you should damage another car while parking or leaving, immediately report the incident, along with the license numbers of both vehicles and any other pertinent information you may have, to the NSU Public Safety Department. The Health Professions Division and NSU do not assume any liability for any loss or damages you may sustain while parked in the parking garage. Use of NSU parking facilities are always at your own risk. Photographs and Recordings No one may take photographs or record audio or video in classrooms, laboratories, or clinics without prior permission of the instructor and student(s) within those facilities. Absolutely no photographs or video may be taken in the anatomy laboratories. Students wishing to record lectures must obtain permission from the instructor. Post-Exposure Policies and Procedures An occupational exposure is considered an urgent medical concern which requires immediate attention for proper medical management. An exposure that might place a student at risk for Hepatitis B Virus, Hepatitis C Virus, or HIV infection is defined as a percutaneous injury (e.g. a needle stick or cut with a sharp object) or contact of mucous membrane or non-intact skin (e.g. exposed skin that is chapped, abraded, or afflicted with dermatitis) with blood, tissue, or other body fluid that are potentially infectious. If a student has experienced such an exposure he or she must not delay in seeking medical care. If the exposure happens Monday-Friday during business hours, a student who is on the Fort Lauderdale/Davie Campus is to immediately contact Infection Control at (954) 262-7352 to report such an incident. After the student contacts Infection Control the student is to contact the Student Medical Center (8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.) at (954) 262-1270 to receive appropriate care. If the student is on rotation or at a regional campus, the student must go to the nearest local emergency room or urgent care center for evaluation and treatment. The student also is responsible for immediately notifying a supervisor and the Office of Risk Management.
