As a volunteer, I realize that I am subject to a code of ethics similar to that which binds the professionals in the field in which I work. I, like them, assume certain responsibilities and expect to account for what I do in terms of what is expected of me.
I understand that any information that is disclosed to me while assisting the Hospice is confidential.
I interpret "volunteer" to mean that I have agreed to work without financial compensation. As a volunteer worker, I expect to do my work according to the standards set forth in Volunteer Policies and Procedures.
I understand that my acceptance as a volunteer is contingent upon the successful completion of my references, criminal background/sex offender investigation and pre-volunteer drug screen.
I understand volunteers must attend a volunteer workshop requiring 12 hours of education and that Accreditation Commission for Healthcare (ACHC) requires 12 hours of continuing education annually. I understands that I must also submit to a TB test prior to volunteering.
