Why the Code of Conduct is Important
Each employee is held accountable for his or her behavior and action. In addition to supporting the Burgess mission, the Code of Conduct helps to ensure that all of our actions and behaviors are consistent with the numerous legal, ethical and professional obligations involved in our daily work. Actions and behaviors that are inconsistent with the Code of Conduct can harm relationships with patients, our communities, business partners and others we need to assist us in the delivery of health care services.
All individuals will be held accountable for actions and behaviors inconsistent with the Code of Conduct. Violations can results in disciplinary action, up to and including termination of employment, suspension of medical staff privileges or termination of business relationships.
