As part of the Goodland Regional Medical Center Compliance Program, this Code of Conduct has been adopted by the Board of Directors to provide standards by which all GRMC employees and other persons affiliated with GRMC (including but not limited to members of the Board of Directors, volunteers, students, and trainees) shall conduct themselves to protect and promote organization-wide integrity and enhance GRMC's ability to achieve its mission.
Adherence to this Code of Conduct is a condition of continued employment for all employees. An employee's failure to abide by this Code of Conduct may lead to disciplinary action. For alleged violations of the Code of Conduct, GRMC shall weigh relevant facts and circumstances, including, but not limited to, the extent to which the behavior was contrary to the express language or general intent of the Code of Conduct, the egregiousness of the behavior, the Employee's history with the organization, and other factors which GRMC deems relevant. Discipline for failure to abide by the Code of Conduct may, in GRMC's sole discretion, range from oral correction to termination.
With respect to those persons who are not employees, adherence to this Code of Conduct is a condition of such persons' continued relationship with GRMC. Such person's failure to abide by this Code of Conduct may, in GRMC's sole discretion, lead to an alteration of the terms or discontinuation of such relationship.
GRMC has developed specific policies and procedures implementing the principles and standards contained in this Code of Conduct, and employees are expected to be knowledgeable of and comply with those policies and procedures. To the extent that any policy or procedure is inconsistent with the principles and standards contained herein, that policy or procedure is superseded by this Code of Conduct.
GRMC's Risk Manager also serves as the Compliance Officer. The Compliance Officer has overall responsibility for the operations of GRMC's Compliance Program. Any questions concerning the provisions of this Code of Conduct should be directed to the Compliance Officer.
Nothing in this Code of Conduct is intended to nor shall be construed as providing any additional employment or contract rights to any employee or other person.
This Code of Conduct is a living document, and shall be revised on an annual basis to coincide with annual employee training.
