NVC Risk Management

If any employee or student catches COVID, you no longer have to report it to Risk Management. Follow the CDC and Metro Health guidelines at: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/

If an employee or student sustains an injury/illness, contact nvc-riskmgmt@alamo.edu to report the incident and they’ll guide you through the process.

FOR EMPLOYEES ONLY: If you need medical attention, please go to your nearest Texas Med Clinic: https://www.texasmedclinic.com. Before you are seen by a doctor, let them know that you are an Alamo Colleges District employee and that this visit needs to be filed as workers compensation. You will not need to pay for the visit. Let us know if you are planning to seek medical care so Enterprise Risk Management can provide approval.

If you need medical help during an emergency, please call dispatch at 210-485-0911 or 911. Reminder: anytime there is an injury or illness at an Alamo Colleges property and/or during scope and practice of your job duties, it needs to be reported to direct supervisor immediately. Supervisors need to report injury or illness to Enterprise Risk Management within 24 Hours.

Take a few minutes to refresh your memory on the emergency response procedure posted in every classroom. If you are missing a guide or need additional copies, contact nvc-riskmgmt@alamo.edu or gdansby3@alamo.edu

Lastly, as Paulina Betancourt moves on to pursue her Bachelor’s Degree at UTSA, please wish her well and welcome Alexis Avila to the Risk Management team.
