Value #1 – Ownership

People who take Ownership demonstrate…

  • Professionalism
  • Initiative to evaluate, implement change and improve
  • Follow-through with addressing conflict

To demonstrate Ownership, we commit to hold each other accountable for the following:

  • Create a positive work environment and community perception by demonstrating one’s best professional judgment when representing UF
  • Respect the law and also recognize a responsibility to seek changes in those requirements which are contrary to the best interest of the patient
  • Behave with the mindset that ‘I own UF Urology including its successes and opportunities for improvement’
  • Aspire to a collective and shared success
  • Ask yourself, ‘How am I contributing to what is or has happened?’
  • Take corrective action when necessary
  • Solicit feedback from others routinely and act on it when appropriate
  • Take ownership of problems until resolved
  • Remain calm when confronted with or responding to pressure situations
  • Be mindful of cost, organizational resources, and work efficiently and effectively to minimize waste (time, supplies, etc.)
  • Wear ID badge at all times
  • Provide evidenced based, high quality care to your patients
  • Demonstrate cooperation and availability when on call, including prompt response to pages, emails, texts and phone calls
  • Be readily available for clinical and call coverage needs
  • Actively participate in the training, oversight and evaluation of all Advanced Practice Providers
