  • As a job shadow/observer applicant, I will agree to abide to the following:

    In making this application to job shadow/observe at Western Missouri Medical Center (WMMC), I understand that I must abide by all WMMC policies and procedures. I will follow any unit specific rules that are explained to me.

    I understand that I must respect each patient's and staff member's privacy and right to confidentiality and will not seek information regarding specific patients. I will not discuss with anyone outside of the organization, names or information I may come upon during my experience here.

    I understand I must keep confidential any information I may observe during the course of my job shadow/observe experience. If a violation of privacy does occur even after the experience, your school/college may be in jeopardy of not being allowed to send students in the future to intern at WMMC.

    I will dress appropriately as specified by my assigned department/unit. NO low-cut, low hanging, spaghetti strap tops, NO blue jeans or shorts and NO flip-flops will be worn.

    I understand that I must always wear a name tag while I am at the Medical Center job shadowing/observing during the date agreed upon.

    I understand that any action unbecoming will not be tolerated. The use of obscene language will not be tolerated. WMMC is a tobacco-free environment, thus no tobacco products will be allowed in or on any owned or leased buildings, grounds, parking lots, ramps, plazas, vehicles and sidewalks adjacent to our properties.

    I will not damage, deface or destroy any WMMC property. If this occurs, I may be held responsible for any/all damages.

    I agree to be punctual and conscientious. I will treat others with dignity, courtesy and consideration.

    I understand that I may compromise the health of the patients, staff and visitors if I am experiencing any of the following conditions: upper respiratory infection, diarrhea or skin lesions. Thus I will not come to WMMC and will call Human Resources to let them know I will not be coming on the designated day(s). Additionally, I understand that if these conditions occur during my assigned hours, if appropriate, I may be asked to leave the Medical Center.

    I understand that approval for this program Is for a specified length of time and that failure to meet any of the requirements shall cause approval to job shadow/observe to tie forfeited.

    I understand that while job shadowing/observing I may be exposed to patients who have contagious diseases as well as to blood and bloodborne pathogens. I accept this risk and should I contract an illness from such exposure, hereby release Western Missouri Medical Center from any liability.

    I understand that if an accident should occur while job shadowing/observing, I accept the responsibility for any medical treatment and/or expenses which may be required, hereby release Western Missouri Medical Center from any liability.

    I agree to abide by the above conditions and by not doing so could result in dismissal from my job shadowing/observing opportunity at Western Missouri Medical Center.
