FOR HEALTH CARE PROVIDERS

  • Lab samples must be carried in approved containers.
  • Conversations within the tram are not private. Be mindful of representing OHSU in public, OHSU's Code of Conduct, OHSU's Respect at the University training, and HIPPA. Wait until the ride is over to discuss sensitive or private information.
  • The tram is public transit--not a form of patient transportation. Coordinate with Patient Transportation to move inpatients between South Waterfront and Marquam Hill. When possible, consider having the provider ride the tram to meet the inpatient.
  • When the cabin is full, consider placing large bags at feet. And first time riders, especially kids, may appreciate a spot near a window.
