The establishment shall provide free-of-charge, to residents who so request, a complete uniform (smock, shirt, slacks or dress) when their duties require that a uniform be worn.
In all cases the establishment shall be responsible for the maintenance or cleaning of the uniform.
The establishment has to provide you with the uniform required for your duties. For instance, if you have to go into the operating room, you must have access to scrubs. Also, the uniform lent by the establishment has to be cleaned regularly by the establishment.
The establishment shall provide the resident who is on call with a digital pager for the duration of his rotation. If the establishment places at the disposal of the resident on call or requires him to use a communication device other than the digital pager, the establishment shall be responsible for paying for the cost of its use. The establishment agrees to meet with the association at the latter’s request with a view to resolving any issues associated with the application of this article.
The resident shall not be responsible for damage to the device placed at his disposal, except where there is negligence on his part.
If you are asked to use a communication device, such as a pager, your cellphone, or other software, within the context of your work as a resident and this use generates additional costs for you, the establishment must reimburse you for them. The reimbursement procedure can vary slightly from one establishment to another, so we invite you to check with the Teaching Office or its equivalent for further information.
