Completion of both the system and the Banner Lassen orientation module is required prior to approval of privileges and can be completed anytime while your medical staff application is in process.

Arriving on Campus

Identification Badges Required on Campus

Stop by Human Resources to obtain your ID badge. You will need to provide a legible government-issued ID card (current driver’s license, military ID or passport).

Providers, allied health practitioners, residents and students must wear a Banner identification badge while on campus to access to restricted areas and as identity verification for patients, staff and others.

Interpretation Services

 
Banner Lassen Medical Center offers Cyracom Interpretation System and Language Assistant to make sure all patient and physicians can communicate effectively and safely. 

Our Language Assisatant can speak English and Spanish and is available on a volunteer basis to assist the staff with brief communication by calling x 2158.  The Language Assistant does not replace a medical interpreter. 

Banner Lassen also offers interpreting services for American Sign Language (ASL) for hearing impaired or deaf patients. Banner Lassen enables physicians and staff to use Cyracom interpretation phone system. Please contact the nurses station for further assistance to connect to the Cyracom system.

Note:  Title VI of the federal Civil Rights Act requires that hospitals provide interpreting services to Limited English Proficient. It is Banner Lassen policy to use ONLY a hospital medical interpreter or telephone service contracted by Banner Health for interpreting to patients, patients’ family members and physicians. Interpretation by family, friends, or untrained staff members is prohibited.
 

Emergency Management

To protect our patients, staff and visitors, Banner Lassen Medical Center has an extensive plan in place for emergency management.  

Regular meetings and drills are conducted to ensure we are ready to face any potential internal or external threat.

An Emergency Operations Plan is available in the Administration office. 

Becoming familiar with these codes will help you to respond appropriately in the event of an emergency. 

These instructions are also available as an attachment to your security badge.  

For more information, contact Mike Novosad at 530-252-2149.
 

Clinical Informatics

What is Clinical Informatics? 

Clinical Informatics supports the design and use of our electronic medical record and related patient care process, as well as the adoption and use of clinical systems by our physicians and other care givers to improve the quality and safety of patient care. 

The team will provide ongoing refinement of the “franchise model” (the standardized way we implement Clinical Informatics at our facilities), pre-implementation education and ongoing support to clinicians on new technology implementations. The Clinical Informatics Team will promote the adoption of best practices to improve patient care.
