Code of Conduct

You’re expected to be honest, act ethically and demonstrate integrity in all situations. You have a duty to follow this Code and all applicable related policies and procedures, as well as those that are specific to your job. You must also comply with all laws that apply to our business. Most of the time, common sense and good judgment provide excellent guideposts. If you’re unsure about the right thing to do, ask someone on the management team.

Before You Act, Ask Yourself:

  • Is this the right thing to do?

  • Am I following Atlantis Health’s core principles and values?

  • Is it legal?

  • Do I have the authority to act?

  • Does the action comply with the Code and applicable policies and procedures?

  • If this action became public, how would it look in the news media?

  • Would I be upset or embarrassed if other people found out about this action?

If your answer to any of these questions raises doubts or questions, talk with your supervisor or anyone in management team. DO NOT PROCEED BEFORE YOU HAVE DONE THIS.

If you’re a supervisor or a manager, you’re responsible for knowing the rules and reviewing the Code with the people who report to you to make sure they’re familiar with its contents and requirements. You’re also responsible for preventing violations of the Code, as well as detecting violations that may occur and reporting them appropriately.

You’re expected to:

  • lead with integrity;

  • encourage employees to ask questions and expand their knowledge of the rules;

  • demonstrate integrity by acting promptly and effectively when necessary; and

  • educate employees on compliance policies specific to their job responsibilities.
