This is the process for faculty bringing students to Mercy Hospital for clinical rotation. The attached document (Instructions for Faculty?) was in the packet given at the Annual Affiliating School Luncheon.
As of January 1, 2006, Mercy Hospital will be expecting an unannounced visit from JCAHO and there cannot be any incomplete files. That includes student and faculty file. To ensure the clinical rotation goes smoothly for everyone, please ask your faculty to comply with the process outlined in the faculty instructions. Students cannot begin clinical rotation without all documentation complete.
Please also refer to the following documents (below) which should be completed before the group goes to Mercy Hospital for orientation; (HIPAA Test & Confidentiality Agreement, Safety & Blood-borne Pathogen Test & Student Roster).
