Recognizing that these policies are lengthy and detailed, a multidisciplinary group is in the process of creating checklists to help guide staff through the applicable procedures to follow. When completed, those checklists will be attached to the policies and announced. Please contact the Legal Department (984-974-3041) with any questions.
