A vendor is an individual that is external to UHN that conducts business, provides a service or product support to the organization.

Your vendor privileges do not ensure open access as a vendor. Vendors must show approval by the Division Head and Surgeon-in-Chief for every visit, as well as register with OR Reception upon arrival to the OR. Proof of the approval is required and must be presented for each visit. You are only to support the case or work as outlined in your vendor access agreement.  Once your Support/Work is completed, you are to leave the OR /work area and exit the premises.

3. What is the difference between Vendors that perform Patient Care and Training duties compared to Sales/Relationship-building?
