Announcements

HIPAA and Public Health
April 6, 2016

Some of you may be aware of the recent Mumps outbreak at the Purdue campus. With that in mind, we would like to take a moment to explain the requirements to report and how your protected health information (PHI) is handled. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) allows PHI to be shared with public health authorities for the purpose of preventing or controlling disease. In order to comply with public health requirements, PUSH will provide the vaccination record and contact information (name, phone number, and address) for individuals affected by the mumps. This may include patients diagnosed with mumps and others who have close contact with them. PUSH may also provide a list of students who are non-compliant, have exemptions for, or are not required to complete the vaccines. Please contact PUSH at 765-494-5908 or hipaa-privacy@purdue.edu if you have any questions.

PUSH DOES NOT PROVIDE WORKERS COMPENSATION CARE
January 12, 2016

Students who are injured on the job must follow their employer's workers compensation policy to ensure that they receive the care that they need and to ensure that the costs of the care do not become their responsibility. PUSH is not a designated workers compensation medical facility and if you are a student employee who becomes injured or ill as a result of your job, you must follow your employer's policy regarding care.

Advance Directives
September 8, 2015

An Advance Directive is a written document that is completed prior to an individual, over the age of 18, becoming incapacitated, or unable to make their own healthcare decisions. The document provides a detailed account of the individual’s preferences regarding healthcare treatment in the event that they become incapacitated. A Living Will and Durable Power of Attorney for Healthcare are two common types of Advance Directives. A Living Will provides instructions to physicians and family members regarding the student's desires for treatment. This is most often used to determine whether or not an individual wishes to be on life support or resuscitated. A Durable Power of Attorney specifies who the student would like to make healthcare decisions for them in the event that they are unable to make decisions on their own. For assistance regarding these documents, contact Student Legal Services.
