Porter Hospital

Information For Students Visiting Porter Hospital

Due to health care privacy laws (HIPPA), Middlebury College deans and Residential Life staff normally will not have up-to-date information about current health situations or treatment recommendations.  If you want them to know, you must tell them.

What should I do when taken to the hospital?

  • Inform your family of your condition as soon as possible if you have not already done so.  The hospital staff can help you.
  • If you need additional support, contact your Commons Office or the Department of Public Safety.

What should I do when returning to campus from the hospital?

  • Carefully follow the discharge instructions given to you by the hospital staff.
  • Call Parton or the hospital if you need help understanding the instructions.

What are my resources for self-care?

  • Enlist the help of your friends or residence staff if you need support taking care of yourself, such as getting food, drinks or necessary medications.
  • Immediately contact Parton if your condition worsens (or return to the Emergency Room if Parton is closed).
