Employee Time Records
It’s the responsibility of all OMH employees to keep track of their time record. Employees must use their employee badge to clock-in and clock-out of each work shift. If an employee forgets their badge they must fill-out a time correction slip, which is located next to the human resources time clock, and give it to your immediate supervisor. Employees are asked to review their time records to check for any inaccuracies, which must be reported to your supervisor immediately. If your paycheck amount is wrong, contact your immediate supervisor and the accounting department as soon as possible, so a new check can be issued to you. Also, if an employee is pulled to another work area within the hospital, they must change the department entry on the time clock.
Requests for PTO/ESL time need to be presented on a Time Correction Sheet to your immediate supervisor.
Health Information Portability and Accountability Act is the federal law stating that all patients’ medical information must be kept confidential and can’t be disclosed to anyone without the patient’s permission.
The only exceptions to HIPAA are:
Patient information can only be given on a need-to-know basis to specific individuals or those directly involved in the care of the patient.
- If the patient gives permission for their health care information to be reviewed by specific individuals.
- If a patient is incapacitated and can’t give consent for disclosure of medical information to family members or anyone directly involved with their care.
- If the patient is either the victim of a crime or involved in a crime then the incident has to be reported to law enforcement immediately, and all patient information must be reported to law enforcement.
Hospital Employees caught violating HIPAA will be reprimanded, which may include termination from the hospital.
It’s the responsibility of all OMH employees to report any signs of abuse of a patient to their supervisor immediately. Failure of an employee to report patient abuse could result in their dismissal from the hospital.
OMH offers a wide variety of benefits to its employees; we offer health insurance and prescription coverage through Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Oklahoma, dental insurance through Guardian Dental Insurance, cancer coverage through Aflac and critical illness coverage through Allstate. OMH also offers prepaid legal and flexible spending account resources. The hospital’s life insurance is provided to employees through Leaders Life Insurance.

OMH employees have the option of purchasing $20 snack and, or lunch cards to be used in the hospital’s cafeteria or snack bar. Cards can be purchased in either the snack bar or cafeteria, and can be paid for with cash or through payroll deduction. Snack cards can’t be used in the cafeteria and lunch cards can’t be used in the snack bar.
Hospital Gift Shop
The OMH Auxiliary’s Gift Shop is located in the main lobby at the south entrance of the hospital. It offers a wide variety of gift and personal items. Hospital employees receive a 10 percent discount on all items in the gift shop, and can purchase items by deducting the item amount from their paycheck.

OMH employees will follow every precaution and recommendation for on-the-job accidents, injuries or illnesses.
