College of Health Sciences: Incidents in the Clinical Agency

An incident occurring which affects patient or staff well being or the patient's prescribed care will be reported to the clinical instructor or preceptor immediately. An institutional incident report will then be completed following the policy of the health care institution or hospital in which the incident occurred. A duplicate of the hospital incident report as well as a memorandum of explanation from the clinical instructor or preceptor will be placed in the student's clinical file and the department chair, program director or clinical director will be notified immediately. Incidents involving gross errors in judgment or practice on the part of the student will constitute grounds for dismissal from the program
