Violation Reporting - Online Form
Anonymous Reporting of Resident Issues
This form allows an anonymous report by anyone of violation(s) of Boston Medical Center’s Duty Hours Policy. In addition to residents and fellows, any BMC employee or a resident's family member can make the report.
Examples for using this report:
- instances of coercion to exceed duty hours involving the person reporting the violation or observed coercion of others.
- observation of evidence for excess fatigue and sleep deprivation in residents who continue to engage in active patient care.
When this form is used, we guarantee that no demographic information such as IP address, workstation ID, or any other identifying information is captured, and you will remain anonymous.
The secure information you provide in this form will be immediately routed to the Designated Institutional Official (DIO) Ms. Maxine E. Kessler, for investigation and implementation of corrective action as warranted.
Please indicate the department in violation, the date of the violation, and the nature of the violation.
