1.10 - Following Orders

Proper professional conduct calls for you to follow the orders of your immediate supervisors in the clinic affiliates in patient care situations.  Do not hesitate to request clarification of any written or verbal order with respect to patient care.  Questions, conflicts, and concerns which you may have with respect to what is required of you in the clinical setting are never debatable at the time a patient-related activity is in progress.  This situation could potentially compromise proper patient care and create an undesirable discussion in the presence of a patient. Should you have concerns about clinical requirements in affiliates, such matters should be brought to the attention of the faculty clinical coordinator, the program director, or the chairperson, in an orderly and professional manner as soon as possible after the immediate patient care requirements have been met.
