Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Injury
Injured employees can call us at 206.685.1026 immediately following an incident. We can provide first aid and a brief assessment of the injury, and then refer the employee to another healthcare facility for more complete medical attention. If an injury occurs outside EHC’s business hours (8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday to Friday), the employee should seek care at a healthcare facility in the community, such as the UW Medical Center. If it’s an emergency, the employee should call 911.

Bloodborne Pathogen Exposure

Any UW employee with a possible bloodborne pathogen exposure should contact the UW Employee Health Center at 206.685.1026 and be evaluated as soon as possible.

If the exposure occurs outside EHC’s business hours (8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday to Friday), contact the nearest hospital emergency department, which may be located at either the UW Medical Center (206.598.4000) or Harborview Medical Center (206.744.3081).
