Sharps injury or other blood/body fluid exposure? Now dial S-T-I-C-K

You spoke, and we listened. There is now a faster, easier process for any UI employee or volunteer with a sharps injury or blood/body fluid exposure. Simply dial “S-T-I-C-K” or 7-8425 (319-467-8425 for external calls) to connect with an RN 24/7 who will guide you through the expedited process. No more waiting to get antiviral medication; now get the post exposure prophylaxis (PEP) within two hours of injury (the recommended standard).

The initial call must be followed by an in-person visit to the University of Iowa Employee Health Clinic on the next business day. This new process is effective house-wide beginning June 25.
