HNS Policy 

Each of us must comply with all federal and state laws and regulations. Our first and most fundamental obligation is to obey both the letter and the spirit of the law.   


Each of us is expected to act with the highest degree of integrity and professionalism at all times.  All contracted health care professionals shall at all times conduct business with fairness, honesty, integrity, professionalism, and consistent with HNS Policies, and with respect for the laws applicable to the health care industry.   


Even in cases where interpretation of HNS Policies, laws or the HNS Code of Conduct could be ambiguous, permissive or lenient, HNS expects its contracted health care professionals to always do the right thing, in the right way, and to choose the course of honesty and integrity. 


Contracted health care professionals must adhere to the HNS Code of Conduct  and to generally recognized standards of medical and professional ethics and the ethical and professional standards set forth by their respective licensing board.
