Attention Instructors and Students:
Instructors and students coming to the hospital for clinical rotations must comply with the natural nail policy, located under Fall 2013 Semester News on the left. Failure to comply will result in the loss of clinical priviledges.
As a reminder, to take the shuttle to the hospital, you must park at 611 Valley Health Plaza, which is adjacent to the Luckow Pavilion in Paramus. The shuttle no longer picks up and drops off riders at the Luckow Pavilion.
As of the Fall 2013, we are required by CMS guidelines for Inpatient Quality Reporting to provide documentation of influenza vaccination of our healthcare workers, including students and instructors working with patients at The Valley Hospital. Please provide us with this documentation for your students and instructors this upcoming flu season.
Annual glucose competency is required of all students and instructors. Please run your high, lo glucose controls and complete the annual competency test. Please drop the signed competency form to Cathy Hamilton's office on Phillips 4 West.
Please see the forms below for review:
