Should a student experience a needle stick, they are advised to call the Needlestick Hotline regardless of where the incident occurs. If immediate emergency medical treatment is deemed necessary (sutures, x-ray, etc.), the hotline practitioner will work cooperatively with affiliated hospital to arrange this. If post-exposure prophylactic medication is necessary, the hotline practitioner will phone in a prescription to a pharmacy convenient for the student to expedite medication administration. The hotline practitioner and student will work with the hospital personnel to attain source patient blood for testing.
If you experience or witness mistreatment while you are rotating at Stanford clinical sites, we encourage you to report it through one of the options.
1. Contact the Office of Medical Student Wellness (OMSW) directly by email. Only the OMSW members of the office will see this report. They will de-identify information about persons reported and present to the monthly Respectful Environment and Mistreatment Committee for review and action.
2. Report incidents (including by patient) via MedHub (Stanford.medhub.com) or directly in Qualtrics. Students can report at the time of the incident and not wait for the end-of-course evaluations. OMSW receives the report. Egregious incidents are handled immediately. Qualtrics links: clerkship, and mistreatment by patient incidents.
3. Complete a SAFE report through the hospital SAFE reporting system. Reports referencing student mistreatment are sent directly to OMSW. They are kept confidential and addressed quickly.
4. Report incidents to course directors and/or the Assistant Dean for Clerkship Education.
For clerkships that take place in SHC and/or LPCH, email will be sent to your Stanford email address from the Office of Medical Student Affairs (OMSA) prior to the clerkship start date included in your acceptance notification. The email will explain the process for receiving your login information to access the EPIC system for patient records in SHC and/or LPCH only.
Per Stanford University policy, visiting medical students are not granted remote access to patient data. You will complete the process for gaining access to the EPIC system when you are physically located at SHC or LPCH and connected to the hospital's network.
Clerkship coordinators will send information regarding other clerkship site access as needed.
You will receive instructions for completing scrub training if applicable. If so, you’ll complete Scrub and Sterile Procedure Training and complete a knowledge and skills assessment. This involves watching a mandatory training video and completing a test before you arrive on campus. If you have undergone scrub training at your home institution, you’ll still be required to view the video and take the knowledge test. A scrub training attestation form will be provided. If you have not been scrub trained, you will be required to complete scrub training at Stanford on the first day of your clerkship.
You may request a Stanford University Campus Card (different from the Stanford Medicine hospital photo ID badge) in order to use libraries, exercise facilities, and more. For more information, visit the Campus Card Services site.
