WHAT IS THE MEDICAL SURVEILLANCE PROGRAM (MSP)?
The MSP is the component of Clemson
University's “Occupational Health and Safety Program” that
provides occupational health oversight for students and employees with
exposure to animals, biological hazards, and certain chemical and physical
hazards. The Occupational Health
Nurse (OHN) coordinates with the Department
of Environmental Health and Safety (EHS), the Animal
Research Committee (ARC), the Institutional
Biosafety Committee (IBC), the Office of Research Compliance, animal facilities and other departments,
and each enrollee to identify, assess, and manage potential health risks.
Our goal is to reduce risk to the lowest possible level.
CONFIDENTIALITY AND ACCESS TO MEDICAL RECORDS
Each person presenting for enrollment in the Medical Surveillance Program will have a confidential medical record including documentation of immunizations and other medical services received through the MSP. Only immunization/test dates and information pertinent to job exposures, job functions, or risk will be provided to the employee's supervisor. With your signed consent a copy of any or all Clemson Medical Surveillance records can be mailed (or FAXed in some cases) to other institutions, or you may request and obtain a personal copy by contacting the receptionist (864-656-3076). If you have any questions or concerns regarding confidentiality of your medical records, please contact the Occupational Health Nurse.
