Too Tired to Drive Home?

Taxi, Lyft and Uber

The Employer is committed to providing safe transportation options for House Officers who may be too fatigued to safely return home when operating their own vehicle, although the expectation is that House Officers will utilize any available call room for resting before returning home whenever possible. 

However, when you're too tired to safely make it home, call a Taxi/Uber/Lyft and those receipts shall be reimbursed.  House Officers needing to return to the facility to retrieve their vehicles by taxi/Uber/Lyft shall also be reimbursed for the additional expense by their program. This reimbursement for a return trip to retrieve vehicles is limited to a fifteen (15) mile radius of the main medical campus. Reimbursements will be processed through the Concur System.

Use of this program is limited to six (6) times per academic year.
