MLT CLINICAL ROTATION GUIDELINES
Students are not allowed any clinical absences. Any absence will be made up on weekends or holidays and in the department in which the absence occurred. Holidays are built into the school calendar. Clinical Coordinators are asked to keep a sign-in book to record students' attendance.
Three (3) days of tardies will be counted as (1) absence.
Students may be employed on weekends and/or at the discretion of the lab manager. This employment must be for hours exceeding the student training schedule and voluntary. Students may work under supervision in the areas where proficiency has previously been demonstrated or as a phlebotomist.
Students are responsible for their own transportation to York Tech and to the clinical site. During the last 2 semesters of the program, students will be traveling to the clinical affiliate. Every effort will be made to keep the site within a 45 mile driving radius.
Students in Clinical Rotation will return to York Tech on Mondays for campus sessions and test taking.
DRESS CODE: (Clinical Site)
The required dress code is determined at each clinical site.
Name tags are to be worn when in the hospital. It is permissible to wear wedding rings, class rings, and watches. Hair should be kept neat and clean. Long hair must be kept pulled back from face. Beards should be kept neatly trimmed.
Be discrete with patient information. Do not discuss patients outside the laboratory. Results are confidential and are not to be given to the patient. No smoking, eating, or loud talking is allowed in the laboratory. Personal telephone calls are not permitted unless absolutely necessary. Texting and emailing are only allowed during designated breaks. When answering the phone, identify the department and then give your name. Refer to the accountability section of the clinical evaluation for further conduct expectations. During the rotation at the clinical site each student is given study questions to answer pertaining to each department. Weekly tests and department final exams will be given during Monday appointments at York Tech. Tests may also be given by instructors at the clinical site.
