No Comments With all that is happening throughout the world in general and the economic crisis that is engulfing our nation in particular, this paper has provided me the opportunity to reflect on my ethics. Values and ethics are a part of our everyday lives.
All policies apply to on campus and online students. Alcohol and Drug Policy Personal conduct Methodist College recognizes that misuse of alcohol and other drugs and the unlawful possession, use or distribution of illicit drugs and alcohol pose major health problems, are potential safety and security problems, can adversely affect academic, clinical, and job performance, and can generally inhibit the educational development of students.
As a result of this commitment, NMC has established regulations forbidding students to engage in the unlawful manufacture, distribution, dispensing, possession or use of illegal or illicit drugs and alcohol on NMC premises or property or as part of any NMC activity planned for or by students.
These regulations shall assure that NMC is in compliance with all applicable federal, state, and local statutes, regulations, and ordinances.
NMC encourages all members of the college community to maintain Personal conduct and social responsibility when making decisions regarding the use of alcoholic beverages off NMC premises. Students are expected to adhere to the standards of behavior required of healthcare professionals.
A one-time deviation from safe practice may be sufficient to judge a student's behavior unsafe.
In sum, by enrolling at NMC, students acknowledge and agree to the following: It is a violation of the Drug and Alcohol Policy for students to consume or possess alcoholic beverages on campus. Student possession or consumption of alcohol on NMC premises or property or at any College-sponsored event shall constitute misconduct.
A College-sponsored event is any gathering where students are in attendance that is planned for or by students and endorsed by the College. Misconduct constitutes a student attending class, clinical, laboratory sessions, practicum or College-sponsored or approved events while impaired by alcohol or drugs illegal or prescribed.
Any student or student organization which violates this policy will be subject to disciplinary action which may include immediate dismissal from the College. The manufacture, sale, possession, distribution or use of illegal drugs is prohibited.
Procedure for reasonable suspicion testing: Student confidentiality will be maintained as much as possible. Remove the student from patient care and arrange for student oversight based on the clinical site policy. The student is to remain in that location until drug testing is completed.
Call the NMC Reception Desk at to report suspected student impairment and provide the following information - name and contact phone number of person reporting the incident, clinical site location include full address for clinical site and departmentstudent name and program.
The Receptionist will contact Midlands Testing Services MTS at or and notify them of the site and contact person. The Receptionist will also contact the Dean of Students at to report the incident.
MTS will come directly to the clinical site to complete the drug testing. Upon arrival, MTS will call the contact phone number for the location of the student. Do not use force to detain the student or do anything that might place yourself or others at risk.Personal Protective.
