We created the New Teammate Orientation program to help make it as easy as possible for you to become a fully engaged member of our workforce and our culture of caring.
As teammates in healthcare, we all have a special role to play so that we can support our communities and patients. To help minimize the risks to our teammates and patients we serve, rather than gathering as a large group for Teammate Orientation, you will now be completing a Welcome to Atrium Health eLearning module within five (5) days after your New Teammate Orientation date. This eLearning will include access to the “System of Integrity” Code of Conduct Handbook and an Orientation Guide with important information and steps to take during your first week.
Temporary Masking Policy in Effect, Thursday, Dec. 7, 2023
Due to the declaration of the Respiratory Viral Season, we have started our temporary masking policy in alignment with other health care systems to reduce risks of infections in our facilities. If you are currently looking for or being hired into a role that is required to be in a clinical setting, it is strongly encouraged and, in some cases, mandatory to wear a mask for protection of yourself and other patients and teammates. We will continue to monitor respiratory virus cases and will reevaluate these measures when the number of cases shows a sustained decrease.
Please speak to your Talent Acquisition partner if you have any questions. Their contact information is at the bottom of your offer letter.
Patient Care Support Orientation Schedule
For Nurse Aides, Healthcare Technicians, Behavioral Health Psych Techs, Unit Secretaries & Patient Safety Attendants
Your badge is a visible symbol that you are now a member of our family. While at work, always display your badge with the photo facing out on your collar, lapel or front pocket.
As of May 4, 2021, Atrium Health is taking steps to enhance patient safety by standardizing the scrub colors worn by clinical teammates throughout the system. The consistent uniform colors will ensure patients and their family members know who is caring for them. You can determine the appropriate color for your position using the grid below.
Teammates may begin wearing their new uniform color immediately, even if their current unit/location/role has a previously designated uniform color standard. If you are required to wear surgical scrubs for infection prevention purposes (OR areas, procedural areas, etc.), you will continue to follow the departmental policy for wearing surgical scrubs.
If you do not work in one of the areas shown in the table, contact your leader for uniform information.
