Each McGaw member hospital maintains its own individual policies. These policies include such topics as HIPAA, infection control, professionalism, discrimination and harassment, and impairment. Housestaff members are responsible for complying with any applicable hospital policies and procedures and should review them from time to time, as they may be subject to change. Failure to comply with hospital policies, including those in place at the hospital at which a housestaff member is based and at any hospital at which the housestaff member rotates, may result in disciplinary action from McGaw.
