Harassment Policy

Policy Purpose:

Medical Education Leadership and Administration strictly follows Mount Carmel Health System's ("Mount Carmel") policy and regulations regarding various forms of harassment. Mount Carmel will not condone or tolerate any form of sexual, physical, or verbal harassment of its employees, patients, and/or visitors. Any employee, including a resident physician, found to have harassed another employee, patient or visitor will be subject to immediate disciplinary action, up to and including termination. We also will not tolerate any retaliation against an individual who has registered a harassment complaint or who has cooperated in a harassment investigation.

If you have a complaint regarding harassment, you should direct it immediately to your Program Director, the Vice President of Medical Education, or the Director of Human Resources at the site hospital where the harassment incident(s) occurred. The complaint will be investigated pursuant to Mount Carmel policy, and if the investigative team finds the complaint valid, appropriate action will be taken.
