• Requirements for Volunteering

  • Volunteer service is a responsibility that requires a definite commitment of time, energy and desire to serve, and therefore requires preparation, orientation and training. Because of the nature of care being delivered at the hospital, all volunteers are carefully screened and placed into appropriate assignments, and each volunteer must adhere to standard policies and procedures.

    The placement process includes:

    • Prospective volunteers must be at least 16 years of age
    • Commit to a four hour volunteer shift, one day a week, for a minimum of six months (minimum of 100 hours of volunteer service in one year)

    Prospective volunteers must also complete the following before receiving a service assignment:

    • Attend a volunteer information session
    • Complete the volunteer application
    • Complete the medical health screening provided by our employee health nurse including:
      • TB Blood Draw
      • Flu Vaccination
    • Pass a background check

    This process is designed to ensure the safety and well-being of patients and families, as well as the confidence and success of volunteers.

    Volunteers will then:

    • Attend volunteer orientation
    • Train for their specific volunteer position
    • Remain current with provided biennial TB form and annual flu vaccinations
