Do I need an appointment?

Yes, at this time we require appointment ONLY . Please call 229-931-2235 to schedule an appointment.

Can I get a Recommendation for an Excuse if I call in and tell the nurse how sick I am?

No. You must first be assessed in the Health Center.

Can the nurse give me a Recommendation for an Excuse or does the doctor have to sign it?

It should not be necessary for you to have a note from the physician. A signature from any licensed health care provider who does your assessment should be honored.

Why does the nurse sometimes take students in the treatment room when it is supposed to be my turn?

We try to see students in the order in which they signed in. However, as in any health care facility, it is sometimes necessary to triage or to see students based on the severity of their problem.

What infection control precautions do you use at the Health Center?

Student Health Services is sensitive to the issue of infection control and follows the standards set by OSHA and CDC. Our clinical staff wears new, disposable gloves with each patient as called for by the procedure. All clinical work surfaces are cleaned according to the schedule in the Exposure Control plan as mandated by OSHA. Reusable equipment is sterilized as appropriate. Disposable equipment is disposed of according to our Infection Control/Exposure Control Plan.

Can I get tested for HIV/AIDS at the Health Center?

We do provide this service throughout the semester however; we will refer you to the Sumter County Health Department where highly trained professionals will assist you in a prompt, courteous, and confidential manner if you request the test at a time that we are not offering it.

Any student who is taking four or more semester hours and pays the student health fee is entitled to the services offered at the Health Center. Those who take less than four hours may utilize the Health Center by paying a co-pay.

Any student who is aware of exposure should be skin tested as soon as possible after the exposure. The test is to be repeated in ten to twelve weeks.
