PUSH Does Not Provide "Excused Absence Notes"
March 29, 2017

The Purdue University Student Health Center (PUSH) does not provide "excused absence notes" for students missing class. The purpose of this practice is two-fold: 1. only the instructor can excuse a student from class, and 2. to eliminate unnecessary visits from students whose sole purpose is to obtain a class absence note for their professors, preventing a time slot from being used by a student seeking PUSH services. If an instructor requests evidence of a student seeking PUSH's services for an illness, the student may use the receipt provided to them at the time of their visit as proof. This receipt only provides documentation of the visit. The decision to excuse a student from class remains entirely up to each individual instructor. For further information regarding the Attendance Policy at Purdue University, please see Regulations, Classes, Attendance:

PUSH DOES NOT PROVIDE WORKERS COMPENSATION CARE
March 6, 2017

In the State of Indiana, the employer determines who provides medical evaluation and care to employees who are injured at work. For all Purdue University student employees, there are two designated workers compensation medical facilities and PUSH is not one of them. For all other students, be sure you know where you are to go for medical care in the event of a work related injury or illness. 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 does not become their responsibility. While PUSH would like to provide all students with necessary care, there are potential financial risks for workers compensation care. Follow your employer's policy to get the care you need, not have to pay for care and, continue to be gainfully employed.
