What are VITALS?

Posted on August 31, 2017 at: 4:33 pm

Do you know the signs of an alcohol emergency?

If you see a fellow Blue Hen experiencing even ONE of these symptoms, get help immediately! You must find an RA or call 911 to qualify for Amnesty. Remember to check for VITALS:

  • Vomiting
  • Irregular Pulse
  • Trouble Breathing
  • Abnormal Skin
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Seizures

Don’t forget according to UD Policy, after you call for help you “must remain with and monitor the student’s condition until assistance arrives, and cooperate fully during the medical and investigative process.” Learn more about Amnesty here.
