                          Emergency Action Plan
                                     2004-2005
Revised August 2005

I.       Purpose of the Emergency Action Plan
Emergency situations may arise at any given moment during an athletic event. When they
do occur, it is necessary that an emergency care plan be established to clearly delineate the
policies and procedures in order to deliver effective and efficient care. Expedient action
must be taken in order to provide the best possible care to the athletes with emergency
and/or life threatening conditions. The development and implementation of an emergency
action plan will help to ensure that the quality of care provided to our athletes is at its
highest. This plan was written with this in mind and provides a detailed description of the
emergency action policies of the Sports Medicine Staff at James Madison University. It is
the goal of the Sports Medicine Staff that this emergency care plan will aid in minimizing the
time needed to provide an immediate response to a potentially life-threatening situation or
medical emergency.

Athletic organizations have an inherent duty to develop an emergency action plan that may
be instituted immediately when necessary and to provide appropriate standards of health
care to all sports participants. As athletic injuries may occur at any time and during any
activity, the sports medicine staff must be well prepared. This preparation involves
development of an emergency action plan, proper medical coverage of events, maintenance
of emergency equipment and supplies, utilization of appropriate emergency medical
personnel, and emergency care education of all members of the sports medicine staff.

                               Introduction
     With athletic practices and competitions, the first responder to an
     emergency situation is typically a member of the Sports Medicine
     Department, most commonly a certified athletic trainer. The team
     physician may not always be present at every organized practice or
     competition. The scope and type of coverage provided to an athletic
     event may vary based on such factors as the sport or activity, the
     setting, and the type of training or competition. There could be some
     instances when the first responder may be a coach or other
     institutional employee. Certification in cardiopulmonary resuscitation
     (CPR), first aid, prevention of disease transmission, and emergency
     plan review is recommended by the Sports Medicine Department for all
     athletics personnel associated with practices, competitions, skills
     instructions, and strength and conditioning sessions. This is in
     accordance with the NCAA Sports Medicine Handbook.
The development of an emergency action plan cannot be completed
without the organization of an emergency response team. This team
may consist of a variety of healthcare professionals including
physicians, emergency medical technicians, certified athletic trainers,
athletic training students, coaches, managers, and in some instances
bystanders.

There are four basic roles for the emergency response team.

      1.   Immediate care of the injured athlete

      2.   Emergency equipment retrieval

      3.   Activation of EMS

      4.   Direction of EMS to the scene

Immediate care of the injured athlete needs to be the first and
foremost concern for the emergency response team. Acute care in an
emergency should be provided by the most qualified individual on the
scene.

Equipment retrieval may be done by anyone on the emergency
response team who is familiar with the types and location of the
specific equipment needed. Athletic training students, managers, and
coaches could easily fit this role.

EMS activation may be necessary in situations where emergency
transportation is not already present at the scene. This should be
done as soon as the situation is determined to be an emergency or
life-threatening event. Time is the most critical factor during
emergency situations. Activating the EMS system may be done by
anyone on the team by dialing 911 or 86911 to notify campus police..
It should be mentioned that the individual chosen for this role should
be one who is able to stay calm under pressure and who
communicates well over the telephone. It is advised that the
individual follow the posted venue specific plan.

Once EMS has been activated, the fourth role, that of directing EMS to
the scene needs to be done. One member of the response team
should be responsible for meeting the ambulance as they arrive at the
venue. Depending on ease of access, this person should have keys to
any locked gates or doors that may slow the arrival of medical
personnel. Campus police are often able to assist in this role.

                     2.    Direct emergency vehicle to scene

IV.         Emergency Communications
Effective communication is the key to efficient delivery of emergency care in athletic trauma
situations. Certified athletic trainers and emergency medical personnel must work together
to provide the best possible care to injured athletes. It is paramount then, that
communication prior to an event is a good way to build rapport and establish boundaries
between both groups of healthcare professionals. If emergency medical transportation is
not available on site during an athletic event, then, direct communications with the
emergency medical system at the time of injury or illness will be necessary.

Access to a working telephone or other communications device, whether fixed or mobile,
should be established. The communications system should be checked prior to each
practice or competition to ensure its proper function. A back-up communication plan
should be in effect in the event of failure of the primary communication system. The most
common method of communications is the public telephone. However, in some instances
cellular phones are preferred. At any athletic venue, whether home or away, it is important
to know the location of a workable telephone. Pre-arranged access to the phone should be
established if it is not easily accessible.

V.           Emergency Equipment
All necessary emergency equipment should be onsite and quickly accessible. Personnel
should be familiar with the function and use of each type of emergency equipment.
Equipment should be in good working order, and personnel should be trained in advance of
its proper usage. Emergency equipment should be checked regularly and its use rehearsed
and practiced by emergency personnel. Emergency equipment consists of but is not limited
to: Automated external defibrillators, spine boards, gurneys, splints, BP cuff, MD trauma
      kits, etc. It is important to note that the emergency equipment available should be
      appropriate for the level of training of the emergency medical providers.

      NATA Official Statement Regarding Automated External Defibrillators

      The National Athletic Trainers’ Association (NATA), as a leader in health care for the
      physically active, strongly believes that the treatment of sudden death cardiac arrest is a
      priority. An AED program should be a part of an athletic trainers emergency action plan.
      NATA strongly encourages athletics trainers, en every work setting, to have access to an
      AED. Athletic trainers are encouraged to make an AED part of their standard emergency
      equipment. In addition, in conjunction and coordination with local EMS, athletic trainers
      should take a primary role in implementing a comprehensive AED program within their
      working environment.

      Rationale

      According to the American Heart Association (AHA), each year approximately 250,000
      Americans die of sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) outside of the hospital.1 As many as 7,000
      children die of SCA each year.2 Evidence suggests that the risk of a cardiac event is higher
      during or immediately following, vigorous exercise. Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is
      critical to maintaining the supply of oxygen to vital organs, but the single most effective
      treatment for cardiac arrest is defibrillation, a shock delivered to the heart using a small
      defibrillation within 3-5 minutes or sooner.1 Most communities cannot meet these
      guidelines. As a result, nationwide survival from SCA is only about 5%. In some
      communities where shocks from an AED and CPR are provided within 3-5 minutes by the
      first person on the scene, survival rates are as high as 48-74%.1

                  34.

      VI.           Transportation

      The Department of Sports Medicine at James Madison University recognizes the importance
      of having the availability of emergency transportation. JMU coordinates with local EMS
      providers to have emergency transportation on call. In addition, EMS coverage may be
      coordinated for other special events/sports, such as Conference/NCAA championship events,
      or major tournaments. In the event that an ambulance is on site, there should be a pre-
      arranged designated location with rapid access to the site and a cleared route for
      entering/exiting the venue.


VI.      Physician Coverage

      The Department of Sports Medicine at James Madison University recognizes the importance
      of having physicians available readily accessible for the care and treatment of athletic
      related injuries or illnesses. In addition, physicians volunteer their time throughout the year
      to assist in the coverage of Conference/NCAA championship events, and major
      tournaments. The team physician for JMU is an employee of the university.
VII     Hospital Services & Emergency Department

      The closest hospital is Rockingham Memorial Hospital. Both the main hospital and the
      emergency room are located adjacent to the JMU campus at the intersection of Cantrell
      Avenue and South Mason Street.


VII       I.     Summary of Emergency Care Plan
      The importance of being properly prepared when athletic emergencies arise cannot be
      stressed enough. Prior planning is a must. An athlete’s survival may hinge on how well
      trained and prepared the athletic healthcare providers are. The emergency action plan
      should be reviewed at least once a year with all athletic personnel (administrators, coaches,
      sports medicine staff, etc.), and should include CPR refresher training. Emergency action
      plans will be posted at each venue specific to that location. Through development and
      implementation of the emergency action plan, James Madison University helps ensure that
      its student-athletes will have the best care available when an emergency situation does
      arise.

                                 Non-medical Emergency Plan

      Purpose:             To establish an emergency action procedure for all non-medical
                           emergencies including inclement weather, terrorist threats,
                           bomb threats, and other acts of nature. All ATC’s and athletic
                           training students should have access to a system of
                           communication with one another. The first person to come in
                           contact with the emergency situation should initiate
                           communication for assistance as needed. The supervising
                           certified athletic trainer will determine the severity of the
                           situation and decide if the emergency personnel are needed.
                           The emergency action plan will then be activated whether or not

                           emergency action plan.

      Emergency Personnel:
                  Staff certified athletic trainers, physicians, and/or athletic
                  training students on site for practices and competitions. In the
                  case of a bomb threat, terrorist attack or other dangerous acts,
                  911 will be activated immediately and they will call the
                  appropriate personnel for the indicated emergency.

Emergency Communications:

                  All Certified Athletic Trainers would have access to a cell phone.
                  Two-way radios may be used at facilities and venues that
                  provide for clear reception.

                                     Weather

Roles of First Responder:

     ·    Evaluate area for safety at the particular facility.

     ·     Lightning Detection System: James Madison University has installed a
         lightning detection system throughout the campus. Detection units are
         located at Godwin Hall, University Recreation Center, and the Soccer
         Complex. In the event of potential lightning strikes a siren will blow for
         15 seconds. At that time, everyone should seek a safe shelter
         immediately. Designated shelter areas are established for each specific
         venue. Once the threat of lightning has passed, the siren will sound 3
         five-second chirps, to indicate all clear. Activity may then be resumed.
         Please note that the threat of weather conditions may preclude the
         suspension of play prior to the alarm sounding. This decision can be
         made by the attending certified athletic trainer upon consultation with the
         officiating crew.

     ·     In the event that the lightning detection system is not in operation, one
         may evaluate the flash of lightning to a bang of thunder for precautionary
         purposes: a 5 second count between the time you see lightening to the
         time you hear thunder means that lightening is one mile away. For any
         count less than 30 seconds, the ATC will move all persons in the area to a
         safe shelter. A safe shelter should be one with plumbing, running water,
         and a telephone line. Avoid open fields, isolated trees, high terrain,
         contact with metal, and bodies of water.

     ·    The ATC or athletic training student will check the National Weather
         Service and the computerized lightning detection system before games or
         practices to ensure that no harmful weather is approaching.

     ·    A digital, hand-held, lightning detector will be used when appropriate.

     If a staff certified athletic trainer is unable to be reached, notify a Graduate
     assistant certified athletic trainer.

     You do not need any forms to travel to the hospital with the athlete. If the
     athlete’s insurance information form is READILY available, send it with them
     but NEVER leave an athlete to get this form. Insurance can be handled
     retroactively.

     A coach or certified athletic trainer should travel with the patient in the
     ambulance.

     If an ambulance is not required, use a university vehicle or have a coach
     transport.
     At the hospital let the ER staff know that JMU has an established set of
     physicians should a consult be warranted.

     If the athlete’s parents or guardian need to be notified, this is the
     responsibility of the ER physicians, coaches, and staff certified athletic
     trainers. Athletic training students should not call the parents.

     With any athlete who sustains a serious condition that warrants emergency
     room attention, the Director of Sports Medicine MUST be notified. This is the
     responsibility of the staff certified athletic trainer, but the task of having you
     contact the Director of Sports Medicine may be delegated to you. The
     Director of Sports Medicine has the responsibility of contacting the
     appropriate Athletic Director to inform him/her of the student athlete’s
     situation

Emergency care for a JMU Athlete away from JMU:

     Coordinate care for the injured athlete with the host certified athletic trainer.

     If ambulance service is not required coordinate transportation with the host
     certified athletic trainer and the JMU coach.

     Send athlete’s insurance information form to the hospital with them if
     available. Again, do not leave the athlete in order to get this form.

     A coach or a certified athletic trainer should travel in the ambulance with the
     athlete.

     You should notify a Staff ATC of the situation once you are at the hospital or
     as soon as possible. As soon as possible, the Director of Sports Medicine
     should be notified of the situation.

     Attempt to obtain all MD notes, x-ray films, etc to bring back to JMU for
     follow-up with JMU’s team physician.

     If an athlete must stay in the hospital, a Coach should stay with them.
     Athletic training students are not to stay overnight in hospitals.

Emergency Care For Visiting Athletes at JMU:

     If a visiting athlete is injured or needs emergency care follow the same
     procedures outlined for a JMU athlete. Coordinate care with the visiting
     certified athletic trainer and assist to provide/coordinate coverage for the
     visiting team if their certified athletic trainer must go to the hospital with the
     athlete.
If the visiting team does not bring a certified athletic trainer, coordinate care
with the visiting coach. Remember that we will assist visiting teams as much
as possible but we are not responsible for their athletes. If a team does not
bring a certified athletic trainer, one of their coaches should accompany the
athlete to the hospital. Athletic training students may go to facilitate
communication, especially if one of our physicians is involved but should not
become responsible for the visiting athlete.

Assist visiting athletes/coaches/certified athletic trainers in obtaining MD notes, x-ray
films, etc including mailing these if unavailable at time of treatment.
