Medical Emergency

If someone becomes ill or is injured and requires medical attention:

  • Call 911 to request an ambulance. Provide them with the following information:
    • Building Address – 180 North LaSalle
    • Floor of building and location of emergency on floor
    • Any details about the accident or illness
    • Injured person’s name
  • Call the Office of the Building at 312.827.7800 so building staff can prepare for the arrival of medical personal and direct them to the location of the emergency. This will expedite medical assistance.
  • Notify your Floor Warden. The Floor Warden should take charge of the emergency until the ambulance arrives (unless a doctor or other medical professional is on site).
  • Unless properly certified, do not attempt to render any first aid before trained medical assistance arrives.
  • Do not attempt to move an injured person.
  • Comfort the victim and reassure them that medical assistance is on the way.
  • Be aware of hazards associated with blood borne pathogens. Wear proper personal protective equipment to avoid direct contact with bodily fluids.
  • After the victim’s immediate needs have been taken care of, remain on site to assist responders and provide pertinent information about the incident.
  • Notify victim’s supervisor.
  • Any personnel who might have been exposed to an infectious material should seek medical attention as soon as possible.
