Standards of Behavior
Morehouse General Hospital employees are expected to display courteous behavior while on duty. It is important that all employees treat others with respect and consideration to establish a positive environment for customer relations and for getting along with co-workers.
Employees who feel they are not being treated with respect or courtesy by other employees, any supervisor, and/or physicians are urged to file a complaint with the Human Resources department. Any negative behavior that is counter-productive should also be reported to Human Resources for follow-up. The Human Resources Director will conduct a private investigation and will ensure that corrective action occurs, if warranted.
The employee behaviors listed below are examples of behaviors that would constitute a violation of this policy and may result in discipline, up to and including termination.
