KU Medical Center Reporting Concerning Behaviors
The University of Kansas Medical Center is committed to providing a positive and safe learning environment for all students in its Schools of Medicine, Nursing, Health Professions, and Graduate Programs, as well as the faculty and staff who support these learning activities in any way.
The KU Medical Center Reporting Concerning Behaviors Policy was developed to provide a campus-wide standard reporting process to assure all occurrences are documented.
This policy is intended to be interpreted broadly to include, for example, mistreatment, either intentional or unintentional, inappropriate or abusive behavior, humiliation, belittlement, intimidation, psychological or physical punishment, the use of grading and other forms of assessment in a punitive manner, racial concerns, ethnic concerns, discrimination related to personal identification, etc.
Students, faculty, and staff may report concerning behaviors directed at themselves or as observed toward another KU Medical Center community member.
For students: Any interactions with a faculty or staff member, another student, or a patient with whom they've had contact, which causes a student concern should be reported either directly to their respective Associate Dean for Student Affairs or Dean for Graduate Programs or anonymously through the Reporting Concerning Behavior Form.
The School of Nursing Associate Dean for Student Affairs is Dr. Barnes. She can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org or 913-588-1619.
Employees (faculty, staff, residents): Any interactions with students, co-workers, supervisors, or other campus constituents, which cause an employee concern should be reported either directly to Human Resources or anonymously through the Reporting Concerning Behavior Form.
