Principia recognizes Christian Science as the standard for healing among Christian Scientists, but that there are instances when 1st Aid or other types of emergency care may be used for temporary relief, or for care and relief for non-Christian Scientists.
Temporary care is a case by case judgment call. Principia accommodates such choices based on Jesus' teaching: "Render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar's, even while you render to God the things that are God's" (My. 220:8).
This document provides a one-source reference and guide on the various considerations involving emergency care, and may be found on the WSD web-site along with other emergency plans and information.

All accidents, injuries and near misses must be reported to WSD immediately (as circumstances permit) or within 24 hours! Also notify the following:
If injuries are employee work related, the supervisor/manager must provide the necessary information on a Workman's Compensation form obtainable from WSD or its web-site.
Accident reports shall be reviewed or investigated for cause by the effected department, WSD or by Campus Security as appropriate.
Pertinent findings shall be addressed, corrections made and noted as part of the report for documentation.
Transportation is to be arranged or provided as deemed necessary by nurse, supervisory, Security, administrative or personnel in positions to make responsible decisions, or at the request of sick or injured persons.
Never allow ill or injured persons to drive - particularly if they have head, eye or neck injuries, or when there may be lapses of consciousness. Drivers should be provided to support the need, and to help explain the circumstances to care personnel if necessary.
A nurse may accompany an individual to provide interim care if necessary, but not just to be a driver.
The use of personal vehicles for transport of ill/injured persons is discouraged for insurance and liability concerns, and should only be considered when no other options are practical or available
Primarily for Principia students who may need stretcher transport to an outside care facility.
