COMPACT BETWEEN RESIDENT PHYSICIANS AND THEIR TEACHERS -- January 2006 The Compact Between Resident Physicians and Their Teachers is a declaration of the fundamental principles of graduate medical education (GME) and the major commitments of both residents and faculty to the educational process, to each other and to the patients they serve. The Compact's purpose is to provide institutional GME sponsors, program directors and 6

residents with a model statement that will foster more open communication, clarify expectations and re-energize the commitment to the primary educational mission of training tomorrow's doctors.

Compact Between Resident Physicians and Their Teachers Residency is an integral component of the formal education of physicians. In order to practice medicine independently, physicians must receive a medical degree and complete a supervised period of residency training in a specialty area. To meet their educational goals, resident physicians must participate actively in the care of patients and must assume progressively more responsibility for that care as they advance through their training. In supervising resident education, faculty must ensure that trainees acquire the knowledge and special skills of their respective disciplines while adhering to the highest standards of quality and safety in the delivery of patient care services. In addition, faculty are charged with nurturing those values and behaviors that strengthen the doctor-patient relationship and that sustain the profession of medicine as an ethical enterprise. Core Tenets of Residency Education – Excellence in Medical Education Institutional sponsors of residency programs and program faculty must be committed to maintaining high standards of educational quality. Resident physicians are first and foremost 7

learners. Accordingly, are resident’s educational needs should be the primary determinant of any assigned patient care services. Residents must, however, remain mindful of their oath as physicians and recognize that their responsibilities to their patients always take priority over purely educational considerations.

18

Highest Quality Patient Care and Safety Preparing future physicians to meet patients’ expectations for optimal care requires that they learn in clinical settings epitomizing the highest standards of medical practice. Indeed, the primary obligation of institutions and individuals providing resident education is the provision of high quality, safe patient care. By allowing resident physicians to participate in the care of their patients, faculty accept an obligation to ensure high quality medical care in all learning environments.

fo

Respect for Residents’ Well-Being Fundamental to the ethic of medicine is respect for every individual. In keeping with their status as trainees, resident physicians are especially vulnerable and their well-being must be accorded the highest priority. Given the uncommon stresses inherent in fulfilling the demands of their training program, residents must be allowed sufficient opportunities to meet personal and family obligations, to pursue recreational activities, and to obtain adequate rest.

As role models for our residents, we will maintain the highest standards of care, respect the needs and expectations of patients, and embrace the contributions of all members of the healthcare team. We pledge our utmost effort to ensure that all components of the educational program for resident physicians are of high quality, including our own contributions as teachers. In fulfilling our responsibility to nurture both the intellectual and the personal development of residents, we commit to fostering academic excellence, exemplary professionalism, cultural sensitivity, and a commitment to maintaining competence through life-long learning. We will demonstrate respect for all residents as individuals, without regard to gender, race, national origin, religion, disability or sexual orientation; and we will cultivate a culture of tolerance among the entire staff. We will do our utmost to ensure that resident physicians have opportunities to participate inpatient care activities of sufficient variety and with sufficient frequency to achieve the competencies required by their chosen discipline. We also will do our utmost to ensure that residents are not assigned excessive clinical responsibilities and are not overburdened with services of little or no educational value. We will provide resident physicians with opportunities to exercise graded, progressive responsibility for the care of patients, so that they can learn how to practice their specialty and recognize when, and under what circumstances, they should seek assistance from colleagues. We will do our utmost to prepare residents to function effectively as members of healthcare teams. In fulfilling the essential responsibility we have to our patients, we will ensure that residents receive appropriate supervision for all of the care they provide during their training. We will evaluate each resident’s performance on a regular basis, provide appropriate verbal and written feedback, and document achievement of the competencies required to meet all educational objectives. We will ensure that resident physicians have opportunities to partake in required conferences, seminars and other non-patient care learning experiences and that they have sufficient time to pursue the independent, self-directed learning essential for acquiring the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and behaviors required for practice. We will nurture and support residents in their role as teachers of other residents and of

We acknowledge our fundamental obligation as physicians—to place our patients’ welfare uppermost; quality health care and patient safety will always be our prime objectives. We pledge our utmost effort to acquire the knowledge, clinical skills, attitudes and behaviors required to fulfill all objectives of the educational program and to achieve the competencies deemed appropriate for our chosen discipline. We embrace the professional values of honesty, compassion, integrity, and dependability. We will adhere to the highest standards of the medical profession and pledge to conduct ourselves accordingly in all of our interactions. We will demonstrate respect for all patients and members of the health care team without regard to gender, race, national origin, religion, economic status, disability or sexual orientation. As physicians in training, we learn most from being involved in the direct care of patients and from the guidance of faculty and other members of the healthcare team. We understand the need for faculty to supervise all of our interactions with patients. We accept our obligation to secure direct assistance from faculty or appropriately experienced residents whenever we are confronted with high-risk situations or with clinical decisions that exceed our confidence or skill to handle alone. We welcome candid and constructive feedback from faculty and all others who observe our performance, recognizing that objective assessments are indispensable guides to improving our skills as physicians. We also will provide candid and constructive feedback on the performance of our fellow residents, of students, and of faculty, recognizing our life-long obligation as physicians to participate in peer evaluation and quality improvement. We recognize the rapid pace of change in medical knowledge and the consequent need to prepare ourselves to maintain our expertise and competency throughout our professional lifetimes. In fulfilling our own obligations as professionals, we pledge to assist both medical students and fellow residents in meeting their professional obligations by serving as their teachers and role models.

The interactive process is an ongoing dialogue between the appointee and appropriate representative(s) of the University about possible options for reasonably accommodating an appointee with a disability. During the interactive process the University considers information related to the essential functions of the job, functional limitations, possible accommodations, the reasonableness of possible accommodation, and the implementation of reasonable accommodation. The interactive process will also assess whether the proposed accommodation poses an undue hardship to the University. This information will be used by the University to determine what, if any, reasonable accommodation will be made. The interactive process for reasonably accommodating an appointee with a disability, including the reasons for reasonable accommodation, should be documented.

SCHEDULING AND DUTY HOURS

20

18

Providing residents with a sound academic and clinical education must be carefully planned and balanced with concerns for patient safety and resident well-being. Each program must ensure that the learning objectives of the program are not compromised by excessive reliance on residents to fulfill service obligations. Didactic and clinical education must have priority in the allotment of residents’ time and energies. Duty hour assignments must recognize that faculty and residents collectively have responsibility for the safety and welfare of patients.

r2

01

Residents must be able to recognize impairment, including illness and fatigue, in themselves and in their peers and attention to life long learning. They must be able to manage their time before, during and after clinical assignments and assure that they are fit for duty.

ev is

fo

Duty hours are defined as all clinical and academic activities related to the residency program, i.e., patient care (both inpatient and outpatient), administrative duties related to patient care, the provision for transfer of patient care, time spent in-house during call activities, and scheduled academic activities such as conferences. Duty hours do not include reading and preparation time spent away from the duty site. It will be the responsibility of each department to schedule duty time and off-duty hours, in accordance with the standards set forth below.

300.2

Duty hours must be limited to 80 hours per week, averaged over a four week period, inclusive of all in-house call activities.

300.3

Residents must be provided with one (1) day in seven (7) free from all educational and clinical responsibilities, averaged over a four (4) week period, inclusive of call. One day is defined as one continuous twenty-four (24) hour period free from all clinical, educational, and administrative activities.

300.4

In accordance with ACGME standards, a ten (10) hour time period for rest and personal activities must be provided between all daily duty periods, and after inhouse call.

300.5

Continuous on-site duty, including in-house call, must not exceed twenty-four (24) consecutive hours. However, residents may remain on duty for up to 4 additional hours to participate in didactic activities, maintain continuity of medical and surgical care, transfer care of patients, or conduct outpatient continuity clinics. At no time shall residents be required to stay longer than thirty (30) consecutive hours. Residents will be required to record their duty hours electronically on a weekly basis.

ON-CALL ACTIVITIES The objective of on-call activities is to provide residents with continuity of patient care experiences throughout a twenty-four (24) hour period. In-house call is defined as those duty hours beyond the normal work day when residents are required to be immediately available in the assigned institution. On-call requirements may vary from department to department. In-house on-call duty will be scheduled no more frequently than every third night, averaged over a four-week period.

300.6

No new patients may be accepted after twenty-four (24) hours of continuous duty, except in outpatient continuity clinics. A new patient is defined as any patient for whom the resident has not previously provided care.

Frequency of at-home call is not subject to the every third night limitation. However, at-home call must not be so frequent as to preclude rest and reasonable personal time for each resident. Residents taking at-home call must be provided with one (1) day in seven (7) completely free from all educationally and clinic responsibilities, averaged over a 4-week period.



When Residents are called into the hospital from home, the hours residents spend in-house are counted toward the 80-hour limit.



The Training Program Director and the faculty must monitor the demands of a-home call in their programs and make scheduling adjustments as necessary to mitigate excessive service demand and/or fatigue.



In the course of duty hours, if a Resident/Fellow feels too fatigued to drive to/from home, they may take a Cab and provide the original receipt later for reimbursement.

EMERGENCY LOANS AND EMERGENCY PAYROLL PAYMENTS

POLICY It is the policy of University to provide emergency loans to University residents who meet the requirements outlined below as well as to provide payment of salary to a resident on a date other than the resident's regularly scheduled payday, on an emergency basis.

380.2

Emergency Loans. A resident can apply for an emergency loan if the Resident has an immediate need for funds as the result of an emergency and has no other source of money available within the time necessary to act.

380.3

The review of loan applications is made by the UCDHS Emergency Loan Fund Committee, appointed by the Associate Director - Human Resources. The committee consists of at least four members. At least two members of the committee must approve a request before a loan is granted.

380.4

Applications and additional information is available from the Human Resources Resident Program Office.

380.5

Emergency Check. The Accounting Office will issue a temporary emergency check to a resident who did not receive a salary check on her/his regularly scheduled payday because of delays in submission of a personnel or payroll form, on the part of UCDHS. A temporary emergency check will be issued for two-thirds of the delayed gross salary pay due the resident. The remainder of the gross salary less payroll deductions applicable to the resident's entire gross salary will be paid by regular payroll check on the next Payroll/Personnel System computer check-write.

380.6

Advance Check. The Payroll Office will issue a salary advance check to a resident to cover an unavoidable, bona fide financial emergency. The amount of the check is limited to two-thirds of a resident's earned net salary pay for services already rendered in the salary period. The full amount of the advance will be deducted from the resident's next regular payroll check. A resident may receive no more than one payroll advance during a calendar year.

PROTECTION OF RIGHT TO PRIVACY: ACCESS TO INFORMATION IN PERSONNEL RECORDS A resident will have the right to inquire and be informed as to whether the University maintains a record about that resident and to review the notices of personnel records systems which refer to that resident and which are submitted to the State Office of Information Practices.

410.6

To protect a resident's right to privacy, access to personnel records will be made in accordance with the following provisions.

410.7

Access by Resident. A resident's records will be accessible for inspection by that resident; however, records protected by recognized legal privilege and records excepted from disclosure by law may be withheld from the resident. A resident will be notified in writing whenever a requested record about the resident is determined to be "confidential information" as defined in University of California Legal Requirements on Privacy and Access to Information. A resident may request a review by the DIO of a determination that particular information is confidential and may be informed in writing of the findings of such a review within thirty calendar days. This is the sole review process for a confidential determination. In disclosing information contained in a record to a resident, the University will not disclose any information relating to another individual other than that which may be released under Section 410.12.

410.8

As soon as practical, but not later than five training days from the date of request, a resident will be provided copies of the resident's own personnel records or be notified that the requested material is withheld from access pursuant to Section 410.7 or is no longer retained. No information will be modified, transferred, or destroyed to avoid complying with a request for inspection. Copies of records will be available to the resident at the location where the records are maintained or will be mailed to an address provided by the resident.

410.9

Requests for Correction or Deletion. A resident may request correction or deletion of a record under RMS Personnel Policy 440, Grievances, and under this Policy. A resident may request correction or deletion of a record under this Policy by submitting a written request to the chair of the department where the records originated and by sending a copy of the request to the Office of Record. Within thirty calendar days of receipt of a written request to amend a record, the Department Chair either will make the amendment as requested and inform the resident in writing, or will inform the resident of a refusal to amend the record as requested. The refusal will be in writing and state the reason for the refusal and that the resident may request the DIO to review the refusal.

Within thirty calendar days of the Department Chair's response, the resident may request that the DIO review a refusal to correct or delete a record. The Director of Graduate Medical Education will respond in writing to the resident within thirty calendar days from receipt of the request. For good cause, the DIO may extend the review period by thirty calendar days. A copy of the DIO response will be placed in the resident's record only if the request is denied. If the DIO refuses to amend or delete the record, the resident will have the right to enter into the record a statement setting forth the reasons for the resident's disagreement.

410.12

Access by the Public. As required by law, the following information will be released to members of the public upon request: the resident's name, current position title, salary, organizational unit assignment, and current job description. If it is impractical to inspect or to copy the record, an extract of the record of the above terms of a resident's employment relationship with the University may be provided.

410.13

Personnel record information, the disclosure of which would constitute an unwarranted invasion of personal privacy of the resident, will not be released to members of the public unless specifically authorized by the resident in writing (see Section 410.17). The disclosure of information which would constitute an invasion of the resident's personal privacy includes: the resident's home address and telephone number; spouse's or other relatives' names; birth date; social security number; citizenship; prior non-University employment; salary; income tax withholding records; medical records; copies of performance evaluations or letters of commendation or corrective action; and any of the information which may be excepted from disclosure in Section 410.7.

410.14

Personnel record information, other than that referred to in Sections 410.8 410.15, may be released to members of the public provided that a determination is made that disclosure would not constitute an unwarranted invasion of personal privacy of a resident. Questions as to whether release of such information might constitute an invasion of personal privacy will be referred to the UCDHS Assistant Director -- Human Resources.

410.15

Access Required by Subpoena and Other Laws. Personnel information must be released pursuant to a subpoena or in other circumstances when the University is required by law to release the information. Any questions concerning release of information under such circumstances or concerning records which may be subject to legal privilege will be directed to the Office of the General Counsel for The Regents. (A record of disclosure is required; see Section 410.20.)

410.17

Release Pursuant to Authorization. Upon written authorization of the resident, information from the personnel records of that resident, other than material which is accepted from disclosure pursuant to Section 410.7, will be released. The authorization will be valid for thirty calendar days from the date of the signature of the authorization or within a written time limit specified by the resident, whichever is later.

410.18

Prospective Non-University Employers. A prospective non-University employer has access rights to personnel records as a member of the public (see Sections 410.12 - 410.14). Information other than that provided to the public may be released only upon the oral or written authorization of the resident (see Section 410.17).

410.19

With Proper Resident authorization a Training Program Director may provide an oral evaluation of a resident in response to specific job-related questions by a prospective non-University employer who, in the judgment of the Training Program Director, has a legitimate interest in receiving such information. Such evaluation will be based on personal knowledge.

410.20

If pursuant to subpoena or other law (see Section 410.15), a record will be maintained and the resident will be notified of each disclosure of information which identifies that resident and is made. That notification will be prior to disclosure, if possible. The record will show the name, title, and business address of the person to whom the disclosure was made, the date of the disclosure, the information disclosed, and the purpose of the disclosure. A record of disclosure is not required for release pursuant to Sections 410.12 410.14, and 410.17.

410.21

The University will retain any records of disclosure for three years after the disclosure or until the original record is destroyed, whichever occurs first. Disclosure records will include information concerning any unresolved disputes about the accuracy of the records (see Sections 410.9 - 410.11). If a record is corrected within three years of disclosure, and if the name is known of a person to whom uncorrected information was disclosed, a notice of correction will be sent to that person.

Indirect Supervision: Supervising physician is not physically present within the hospital or other site of patient care, but is immediately available by means of telephonic and/or electronic modalities, and is available to provide Direct Supervision. Oversight Supervising physician is available to provide review of procedures / encounters with feedback provided after care is delivered. Faculty members functioning as supervising physicians should delegate portions of care to residents, based on the needs of the patient and the skills of the residents. Senior residents or fellows should serve in a supervisory role of junior residents in recognition of their progress toward independence, based on the needs of each patient and the skills of the individual resident or fellow. Faculty supervision assignments should be of sufficient duration to assess the knowledge and skills of each resident and delegate to him/her the appropriate level of patient care authority and responsibility.

Corrective action will be used to notify residents of concerns relating to the resident’s failure to meet the UCDHS and ACGME graduate medical education standards. These standards include clinical and didactic training activities, instruction of other medical trainees and professional conduct.

TYPES OF CORRECTIVE ACTION

pd at

ed

&

In addition, corrective action may be necessary to address problems related to a resident's adherence to the rules, regulations, policies, or procedures governing that resident's participation in the residency program.

Corrective action may or may not be progressive. If progressive, corrective actions may occur in sequence to include letters of expectation; warning; and dismissal. Principles of due process will be applied prior to dismissal from the program. Below standard performance evaluations, failure to make expected academic progress or a particular incident can serve as the foundation for the issuance of a letter of expectation, letter of warning or intent to dismiss.

430.5

Specific sanctions for non-completion of medical records are defined in, and will be carried out in accordance with, UCDHS Hospital Policy 2509.

430.8

The letter of expectation will describe failure to meet UCDHS or ACGME performance standards, including any pertinent supporting documentation; the improvement expected including any remedial training recommendations; and the probable action which may be taken if immediate and sustained improvement is not achieved. The letter of expectation will also state the resident's right to request review of the action under RMS Personnel Policy 440, Grievances.

RESPONSIBILITY

The UCDHS Human Resources Resident Program Administrator will administer this Policy and will determine whether a complaint is timely and whether it qualifies for review at any step of this Policy. If the complaint has been filed within established time limits, the Human Resources Administrator will grant up to fifteen calendar days in order to permit a technically flawed but timely complaint to be corrected and resubmitted.

INFORMAL REVIEW 440.5

Step I. A resident who has a complaint will attempt to consult in a confidential manner with the appropriate administrator for assistance in possible resolution of the problem prior to filing a formal grievance. If the complaint cannot be resolved through informal discussion, the resident may pursue the formal review process. Attempts at informal resolution of the complaint do not extend the time limits for filing a formal grievance unless a written exception is granted by the Human Resources Administrator in advance of the expiration of the time limits.

63

June 2003

RMS PERSONNEL POLICY 440 Grievances Page 2

A resident with a complaint about the application of RMS Personnel Policy 300, Scheduling and Hours of Training, may consult in confidence with the DIO. The DIO may consult with the resident's Training Program Director, maintaining the confidentiality of the resident's identity, to assist in rectifying the problem. When a complaint alleges sexual harassment, a resident may elect to substitute the UCDHS Sexual Harassment Complaint Resolution Procedure for Step I of this Policy. If the Sexual Harassment Procedure is substituted, and the complaint is timely filed under that procedure, the final date for filing a formal grievance under this Policy will be ten calendar days from the date a decision is issued under that procedure. When both parties mutually agree, a grievance previously filed under the Sexual Harassment Procedure may proceed directly to Step III of this Policy.

65

June 1999

RMS PERSONNEL POLICY 440 Grievances Page 4

Each party will, upon request, provide the other with copies of material to be introduced at the hearing and names of witnesses who will testify on the party's behalf. To the extent possible, such materials and names of witnesses will be exchanged at least ten calendar days prior to the hearing.

440.21

The hearing will be closed unless both parties agree in writing to an open hearing. In the absence of such an agreement, the hearing will be closed to all persons other than the principal parties to the grievance, i.e., the Training Program Director, the resident, and one representative for each party. In addition, a representative of Human Resources may be present to provide assistance. Witnesses will be in attendance only for the duration of providing testimony.

440.22

The hearing will be recorded by the University if no stenographic record is agreed to by the parties in advance.

440.23

Hearing Officer's or Hearing Committee's Authority. The hearing officer or committee will provide the parties with a written decision within thirty calendar days of the close of the hearing. The hearing officer or committee will not add to, delete from, or otherwise modify the provisions of RMS Personnel Policies. The hearing officer or committee does not have the authority to issue subpoenas or order a stenographic record.

440.24

Fees. There will be no cost to the resident for a University-appointed hearing officer or committee. Expenses for stenographic services will be borne by the party requesting such services unless both parties agree otherwise in advance. Copies of stenographic reports may be provided to a party only upon receipt of payment of one-half of the total cost of stenographic services.

440.25

Remedy. If the grievance is sustained in whole or in part, the remedy will not exceed restoring to the resident the salary, benefits, or rights lost as a result of the violation of the policy, less compensation from residency salary or awards arising from this issue. Unemployment payments and Workers' Compensation payments from permanent disability, however, are not considered as compensation when determining the amount of the remedy. No interest will be earned or paid on any amount restored to the resident. Compensation will not be granted for any period of time resulting from an extension of time requested by or on behalf of the resident.

ev is

ed

fo

r2

Code Green – a code notifying all residents that an emergency event has occurred and UCDHS operations will be immediately shifting to its emergency management mode. Disasters occurring outside the Main Hospital facility are considered a CODE GREEN – EXTERNAL. For incidents occurring within the Main Hospital, this is considered CODE GREEN – INTERNAL.

&

R

External Disasters – those disasters taking place in the community or region or in UCDHS facilities other than the Main Hospital, Davis Tower, Trauma Nursing Unit, or Children’s Surgery Center.

B. Residents shall not be first-line responders without appropriate supervision given the clinical situation at hand and their level of training and competence. Resident performance in extreme emergent situations will not exceed expectations for their scope of competence as judged by program directors and other supervisors. Residents will not be expected to perform beyond the limits of self-confidence in their own abilities. In addition, a resident must not be expected to perform in any situations outside of the scope of their individual license.

C. Discussion between the PD and DIO regarding the educational experience of the residents must occur first. If the educational experience/rotation area is depleted of the entire resident complement, the following steps should be taken: 1. Assess availability of faculty (and other resources available in consultation with leadership of the institution) to provide coverage. 2. Assess services to see if schedule changes can accommodate the decrease in manpower. 3. Assess availability of residents on elective rotations which are not Board requirements. 4. Assess availability of residents on research rotations which are not Board requirements. 5. Assess availability of residents on external rotations which do not involve extramural funding. 6. Assess availability of residents on external rotations which involve extramural funding. D. The DIO will contact the Executive Director, Institutional Review Committee (ED-IRC) via telephone only if an extreme emergent situation causes serious, extended disruption to resident assignments, educational infrastructure or clinical operations that might affect the Sponsoring Institution’s or any of its programs’ ability to conduct resident education in substantial compliance with ACGME Institutional, Common, and specialty-specific Program Requirements. On behalf of the Sponsoring Institution, the DIO will provide information to the ED-IRC regarding the extreme emergent situation and the status of the educational environment for its accredited programs resulting from the emergency. E. Given the complexity of some events, the ED-IRC may request that the DIO submit a written description of the disruptions at the Institution and details regarding activities the Institution has undertaken in response. Additional updates to this information may be requested based on the duration of the event. F. The DIO will receive electronic confirmation of this communication with the ED-IRC which will include copies to all EDs of Residency Review Committees (RRCs).

LIFE INSURANCE

Residents/fellows (Safe Harbor participants without Social Security Deductions) contribute to the Defined Contribution Plan (DCP) on a pretax basis. Enrollment is automatic and begins the first day of an eligible appointment. Safe Harbor participants are required to contribute 7.5% of gross salary to the DC Plan Pretax Account. DCP contributions can be invested in UC Managed Funds or Fidelity Mutual Funds. Fidelity Investments has been determined as the master record keeper for all UC DCP, 403b, 457b accounts under FITSCO (1-866-682-7787) The tax-deferred 403(b) or 457b plans enable you to set aside income before it is taxed and also to defer taxes on your investment earnings. 403(b) contributions can be invested in University of California Managed Funds, Fidelity Mutual Funds or Calvert Mutual Funds.

403(b) PLAN (Optional)

Because your contributions to the Plan are deducted from your paycheck before income taxes are calculated, your current taxable income is reduced. Taxes on contributions and earnings are deferred until you retire or take your money out of the Plan. When you retire and begin drawing from your 403(b) Plan saving, you will probably be in a lower income tax bracket than you were during your contributing years - an additional tax advantage.
