Resident medical staff manual

The Resident Medical Staff Manual provides general information about medical staff and hospital policies, procedures, and services that incoming house officers will find helpful, especially during their first few weeks in the UC Davis Health System. Most sections first describe the medical staff or medical center policies and/or the state regulations governing that topic; then give practical information, such as the hours of operation of a service; and finally tell where more detailed information can be found.

However, because of the hospital's complexity and the large number of specialized departments, this manual does not cover all information and all circumstances. More detailed information on the policies and procedures briefly described in this publication is available in the manuals or documents which are located at all nursing stations, ambulatory clinics, and departmental offices.
