Staff Objections to Participating in Aspects of Patient Care - Inside UW Health, About Us, Employee Handbook (UWHC), Employment Expectations and Policies

Focus

UWHC employees are required to provide considerate, respectful, and comprehensive care to patients. Continuity and quality of care may not be compromised because of an employee's cultural values and religious beliefs. Employees must advise their supervisor of cultural or religious constraints which may impact performance of their job duties. The supervisor, in consultation with Human Resources, will explore alternatives to resolve the conflict. A patient's race, religion, national origin, age, gender, sexual preference, or disease process will not be considered as a basis not to participate in aspects of patient care.
