Every year, the Johns Hopkins Health System’s Corporate Compliance Department receives approximately 400 reports from employees who have serious concerns about illegal or unethical behavior in the workplace. These issues vary widely and include privacy, patient care, employment concerns and billing. To ensure that all concerns are addressed and managed expeditiously, a new toll-free, 24/7 hotline is now available for all employees to make confidential reports.
Each report will be treated seriously and discreetly and investigated to its conclusion. Make a confidential report if you suspect noncompliance with laws and regulations; fraud, waste or other abuse; workplace violence; faculty, student or staff misconduct; policy violations; criminal behavior; conflicts of interest; or any other ethical or legal concerns.
Anyone may contact the compliance hotline anonymously, but if you choose to identify yourself, Johns Hopkins has a “no retaliation” policy to protect our employees against any retribution for making a report.
