What do you do if you witness a medical emergency?

A medical emergency is a sudden injury or illness which poses an immediate risk to a person’s life or long term health and requires intervention from the health care team.

Any client or family member witnessing a medical emergency should find a Baycrest staff member so he/she can notify the communications centre. If possible, remain with the individual. A trained, designated alert response team will immediately go to the emergency location and provide assistance.
