Speak to your direct supervisor or your supervisor’s manager.

Retaliation is when an individual (or a group of individuals) tries to cause harm, create unnecessary barriers, intimidate or otherwise “get back” at someone for carrying out their responsibilities under the Code.
BSMH has a policy of no tolerance for any form of retaliation against someone who reports a concern in good faith.
No tolerance for retaliation applies to:
●  Direct as well as indirect retaliation.
Retaliation is when a manager or associate acts against an associate, when that associate files a bona fide complaint under our policies or assists in a complaint investigation.
●   Actions as well as threats of actions.
●   Actions by supervisors as well as by co‐workers.
It takes courage to speak up when something is not right. BSMH values and encourages honest discussion about concerns that are raised. Report any form of retaliation to your manager, CRO or to the Ethics Help Line. Retaliation could result in discipline and even dismissal.
Associates throughout BSMH also receive special training in the federal HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) regulations that protect the privacy and security of patient health information, and they are held accountable for abiding by them. Here is a list of some of the HIPAA Privacy & Security Prohibited Actions.
BSMH is committed to assuring that actual and potential conflicts of interest are disclosed, avoided and/or appropriately managed.
