  • Theft
  • Misuse of UCSD property
  • Misuse of patient information
  • Fraud or corruption
  • Gross misconduct, incompetence or inefficiency

What if I have a question or concern?

The rules governing the health care industry can be complicated. For this reason, it is not always easy to make the right choices when it comes to compliance. If you have questions or concerns with any area of compliance, please ask for help. It is always better to ask before taking an action that might be improper. UCSDHS supports open discussion of ethical and legal questions.

Our Roles as Employees

Please remember, as a University employee or student, you have a personal responsibility to report any activity that appears to violate the Code of Conduct or any applicable laws or regulations. In general, if you are aware of a compliance violation and fail to report it, you may be subject to corrective or disciplinary action.
