The UCLA policy on Universal Precautions should be understood and followed by all employees. It requires the application of blood and body fluid precautions for all patients regardless of diagnosis. Universal precautions were designed to protect health care workers from blood-borne diseases. In general, these precautions involve use of barrier devices such as gloves for anticipated contact with blood and certain body fluids.
UCLA believes that students’ well-being and safety are paramount to academic success. We share the responsibility of responding when a student’s health or safety is at risk by reporting these concerns to the appropriate offices and referring students to campus resources. UCLA’s Consultation & Response Team (CRT) is a group of professional staff members charged with responding to reports of students who may be in distress. This team is comprised of representatives from key campus departments, such as The College, Dean of Students, Counseling and Psychological Services Residential Life, and the UCLA Police Department.
