Gritman’s emergency services are always open and ready to handle a wide range of medical and trauma cases. We accept all patients, regardless of ability to pay.
While student health services are great for routine and non-emergency visits, sometimes you or a friend need immediate care, and you should never hesitate to call 911 in such situations. Gritman Emergency Director Nicole Wheaton says the emergency department frequently treats patients who may have consumed too much alcohol or taken an illegal substance. She stressed Gritman staff does not report these incidents to law enforcement. Safety is the No. 1 priority.
“If you are concerned about your friend, you should either bring them in or call an ambulance, because a dead friend is not going to serve anyone well,” Wheaton said. “We are not going to call the police. We just want to make sure everyone stays with us.”
