During scheduled hours, the Health Center staff provides limited medical services to members of the Lynn community. If a serious health problem arises, the staff may refer a student to the services of qualified off-campus medical personnel.
Every student living on campus is required to submit a complete immunization record before being allowed to enroll.
The following health documentation will be required for all students residing on campus: Health History and Authorization for Treatment forms, physical exam within past 12 months, and a record or exemption of immunizations for: MMR (2 doses), Meningococcal Meningitis, and Hepatitis B.
Health forms will not be required at the time of enrollment for students not residing on campus. However, those students will be required to sign a Health History, Authorization for Treatment and/or any immunization exemption forms if/when seen in the Health Center for medical treatment.
The university assumes no financial responsibility for medical services performed other than the university nurse’s official services, nor does it pay any hospitalization costs, including deductibles.
Students who refuse treatment or hospital admission do so at their own risk. If a student is ill, it is the student’s responsibility to report the illness to the Health Center, residence hall staff and/or Student Affairs.
If a student requires medication on a regular basis, he or she is advised to establish a relationship with a local pharmacy. Parents or guardians may be contacted by the university in cases involving students who are transported to the hospital.
