X. GENERAL PROGRAM POLICIES
NO SHOW FOR DUTY POLICY
If the resident has not been located within 1-2 hours using the measures above, and any other options appropriate to the circumstance, the police will be notified and asked to go to the resident's home to do a welfare check. The decision to call the police should be made in consultation with the program director, assistant residency director for the site, and/or chief resident at the site, if at all possible.
All residents are required to provide primary and emergency contact information, as well as their home address, to the Residency Office, and to update this information immediately with any change.
Lack of timely attendance for duty is a serious professionalism issue and is cause for disciplinary action.
