Policies and Practices

Confidentiality
Students working in a patient care environment have access to confidential information regarding patients or employees. Students must maintain patient confidentiality and avoid discussing patient related matters outside the medical center. Breach of confidentiality will lead to disciplinary action.

Disciplinary Action
Disregarding medical center and/or the school's policies and rules of conduct may result in disciplinary action, ranging from probation to termination, depending upon the severity of the infraction. The student has a right to file a grievance in regard to any disciplinary action.

Drug Free Workplace
Aurora St. Luke's Medical Center and the School of Radiologic Technology are committed to achieving and maintaining a drug free workplace. Any student under the influence of alcohol or illegal drugs, or who uses these substances while at school, will be terminated. Final acceptance into the program depends on the results of a drug-screening test.

Guidance and Counseling
The faculty assists students with any academic and clinical concerns. The school does not offer tutoring services. The faculty will direct the student to the Employee Health Department for counseling or referral in cases of personal problems that may interfere with the program.

Health and Safety
In the event of an injury while at school, students must notify a faculty member immediately and complete an incident report. Employee Health and Wellness evaluates injuries sustained at the medical center or its affiliates and makes recommendations for appropriate follow-up. The student incurs the cost of any related treatment.

Students are responsible for their own medical/dental care during the program. Students are encouraged to carry their own health insurance.

In regard to radiation safety, students must wear a radiation-monitoring device during clinical rotations and abide by all federal, state and department guidelines.
