Safety & Medical Situations
The Campus Recreation & Wellness department and its staff assume no responsibility for injuries received by any person during participation or involvement in any departmentally sponsored program or service. Participants are reminded that their participation in all facets of the program is on a voluntary basis and must be within their personal health status. It is therefore recommended that all participants have a medical examination prior to participation and carry their own appropriate insurance coverage. Most students will be required to purchase insurance provided by the University or sign-off on a waiver stating that they currently have medical insurance. Visit www.ecu.edu and search "student insurance" for complete information.
Whenever an intramural participant suffers a laceration or wound where oozing or bleeding occurs, the competition shall be stopped at the earliest possible moment and the participant will be required to leave the contest. The participant may not return to competition until the wound has been covered, the oozing or bleeding has stopped, and any item(s) of clothing that contain an excessive amount of blood or other bodily fluid (other than perspiration) have been removed and replaced. Campus Recreation & Wellness does not provide trainers on site nor is medical tape available for taping. Intramural Site Managers are trained in how to manage emergency situations in addition to being First Aid, CPR, AED, and Bloodborne Pathogen certified.
