NSU expects its staff, students, faculty, administrators, or any other individual affiliated with NSU to report concerns, suspected violations and/or irregularities of the Compliance Plan, Code of Conduct, laws, rules or regulations, or any identified issues or questions associated with NSU's policies or procedures with respect to any Federal health care program (e.g. Medicaid, Medicare, Champus). It is the policy of NSU to provide a procedure through which our staff, students, faculty, administrators, or other any other individual affiliated with NSU may confidentially report their questions or concerns without fear of retribution or retaliation.
If an employee, student, faculty, administrator, or any other individual affiliated with NSU desires to remain completely anonymous, the individual may submit his/her report through the NSU Corporate Compliance Hotline (888) 609-NOVA.
No adverse action or retribution of any kind will be taken by NSU against any employee, student, faculty, administrator, or any other individual because he or she reports in good faith any concerns or suspected violations.
The Compliance Officer shall receive copies of all Compliance Hotline reports within 24 hours of the report. Individuals making a report to the Compliance Hotline are encouraged to report as much detail as possible, including names, dates, times, location and the specific conduct they fell may violate the law or NSU policy.
The Compliance Officer and/or Compliance Coordinator shall make a preliminary good faith inquiry into the allegations set forth in every disclosure to ensure that the Compliance Department has obtained all information necessary to determine whether further review shall be conducted.
If the confidential disclosure is sufficiently specific so that it reasonably:(1) permits a determination of the appropriateness of the alleged improper practice, and (2) provides an opportunity for taking corrective action, NSU shall conduct an internal review of the allegations set forth in the disclosure and ensure that proper follow-up is conducted.
