<li style="margin-bottom:15px;"><span style="text-decoration:underline;">Purpose</span><br />
+
<li style="margin-bottom:15px;">The policy applies to all faculty of CON who are engaged in Practice (per the definition of practice in Faculty Practice Committee Rules of the Faculty Organization 4.1.10) and have a contract through the Morehead Center for Nursing Practice. </li>
The purpose of a Confidential Report of Occurrence is to provide prompt, complete and accurate documentation of the details related to an incident in order to:  assure continuous quality improvement, identify trends or potential problems, document occurrences to assess liability, process any necessary insurance claims, and provide the information necessary to carry out corrective action and develop programs for prevention ([[Safety_Policy|UNMC Safety Policy Number 2000]]).
+
<li style="margin-bottom:15px;">The Fund will cover expenses specific to the practice activities of the faculty members, for example, DEA, APRN licensure or certification.  </li>
</li>
+
<li style="margin-bottom:15px;">The Fund will cover, based on requests and availability, faculty development and scholarship activities.  These funds will be distributed based on the scholarly merit of the project or the contribution the activity will make to furthering faculty practice at the UNMC CON.</li>
<li style="margin-bottom:15px;"><span style="text-decoration:underline;">Definition</span><br />

<li style="margin-bottom:15px;">The Fund will cover expenses specific to the Faculty Practice Committee, e.g. the costs of the CNE for the Annual Fall Workshop.</li>
An incident is any unusual occurrence which is not consistent with the routine operation of the Medical Center or an agency in which students are assigned for clinical learning experiences. An incident is defined as one which: may or did cause harm, involves possible negligence, requires some immediate consideration or action by the supervising faculty member or administration. Examples include, but are not limited to: accidents, medication errors, accidental exposure to body fluids, theft of property or other potentially dangerous occurrences.
+
<li style="margin-bottom:15px;">Disbursement of funds to practicing faculty are NOT based on the revenue brought in to the account by any individual faculty member but are, instead, equally available to all faculty who are engaged in practice and have a “practice” contract (or equivalent) through the Morehead Center for Nursing Practice.</li>
