Tucson Medical Center makes its facilities available for observation experiences to approved individuals provided the individuals meet organizational requirements. This does not apply to individuals who will participate in a procedure (first assists) or direct the care of a TMC patient. These individuals are not considered observers and must contact TMC Professional Staff Services for instructions. It also does not apply to health care industry representatives who provide services in the peri-operative setting but do not participate in a procedure (e.g. proctors, medical device representatives, etc.).
Tucson Medical Center reserves the right to decline requests if it believes the observation may adversely impact the health and safety of its patients, employees or others. Any participant deemed by Tucson Medical Center to be clinically unsafe to its patients, employees or others shall immediately be removed. TMC retains responsibility, authority and accountability for patient care.
