Rules of Access for the University of Virginia School of Medicine Anatomic Laboratory 1.0 [12.19.07] The University of Virginia School of Medicine laboratory Access policy is based in the right of privacy due all medical patients and as it extends to our anatomical donors. Donation is a gift of education to future physicians studying in Virginia's medical schools. Access to anatomy facilities is available for teaching or research purposes, and for other specifically authorized activities. All persons must complete a training session relevant to their use of the facility, e.g. HIPAA. Access is via electronic ID card key. Only students, faculty and other authorized UVa personnel are allowed in the gross anatomy laboratory space. No unauthorized persons are allowed into the laboratory. Violation of this policy will be regarded as a breach of professional conduct. Admission to the Anatomy Laboratory Entry to the anatomy laboratory can be granted only after confirmation of the identity of the individual seeking access, that individual's authority to gain access, and that appropriate supervision is in place. All requests to bring individuals into the lab should be directed to the anatomy course director or their designee. Faculty and Staff Prior to granting faculty access to the laboratory the anatomy facility director or designee must confirm each faculty member’s need for access. Legitimate reason for access of faculty and residents includes teaching or support activities in courses or electives using the anatomy laboratory, e.g. the Anatomy or Pathology courses or Anatomy electives. Students Prior to granting student access to the laboratory the anatomy facility director must receive confirmation of each student's formal enrollment (UVA SoM Student Affairs/Registrar; GME Office; CME Office). Students must be able to produce their UVA photo identity card on request. To ensure safety, students entering the laboratory outside of normally scheduled laboratory time must use a “buddy system” with other students. Facilities Management Employees/Outside Contractors All Facilities Management personnel or contract workers for repair and general maintenance must carry Medical Center approved identification with them at all times during the repairs or maintenance. Anatomy staff or Medical Center Security must be available to provide supervision as needed. Outside contractors must register with Medical Center Security prior to commencing work and complete a training session before access to the anatomy laboratory is granted. Auditors/Inspectors Prior to granting auditors/inspectors access to the anatomy laboratory, the anatomy facility director must receive confirmation of the identity of auditors and inspectors, ensure that each has completed the necessary training, and that there is appropriate supervision to monitor and assist the auditor/inspector. Others All other persons must have authorization from the anatomy facility director or designee. Under no circumstances are unauthorized persons to be granted access to the School of Medicine anatomy laboratories at any time. Any attempt to gain unauthorized access to the School of Medicine anatomy laboratories, whether the attempt is successful or not, will be considered to be in breach of this policy and may be subject to disciplinary action.
