Applicant Participation, Authorization and Consent for Treatment
Over the years, many students with a variety of medical and psychological difficulties have successfully completed our programs, but we must be aware of these conditions. Failure to disclose such information could result in serious harm to you (or your child) and fellow students. If you (or your child) arrive at the program start with a preexisting medical, behavioral or psychological condition which is not indicated on your medical form and you are subsequently unable to participate fully or are forced to leave the program because of that condition, you may be charged an evacuation fee and will not receive a refund of tuition.
I understand the above paragraph and agree to its terms. Consent is hereby given for the applicant to attend an OUTWARD BOUND program and permission is given for any emergency anesthesia, operation, hospitalization or other treatment (whether for an emergency or not) which might become necessary. I agree to be responsible for any and all costs associated with such treatment, including the costs of evacuation, if any. All information will be kept confidential except that information may be disclosed to any medical or other provider as needed for my (or my child’s) care. If Outward Bound arranges for treatment for me (or my child) by a medical provider, I authorize that medical provider to release information about me (or my child), and my (or my child’s) condition and treatment to Outward Bound. I understand that I (or my child) may be in remote areas, several hours or days away from any medical facility or where communication, transportation, or evacuation is subject to delay.
