About

The motto of St. John is "Compassionate Care, Medical Excellence". A cardio-pulmonary volunteer lends support to patients who are in the recovery process. Volunteers should have a warm, compassionate attitude and possess good listening skills. Volunteers should also be able to interact with a diverse population in stressful situations.

Volunteers are needed Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 7:00 AM until 12:00 PM and Monday and Thursday afternoons from 1:00 - 6:00 PM. Volunteers should have an interest in helping patients or in learning more about cardio-pulmonary rehab positions in the medical field. The staff is willing to train interested people.

Volunteers protect patient, staff, and department confidentiality. They also perform light clerical duties such as assembling new patient evaulation packets and discharge packets for Pulmonary and Cardiac, and pulling education handouts for classes.

Volunteers will assist patients with monitor hook up, directing patients to proper equipment, demonstrating and assisting with equipment set up, and ensuring that the setting matches the exercise prescription on the patient's card. Volunteers also assist patients to the water fountains if needed, help restock supplies, and clean and sanitize equipment as needed.

This is a great opportunity for someone entering the medical field to observe and learn about the procedures for exercise testing and prescription, case management of patients, and EKG monitoring.

If you've had heart disease or a heart attack, or know someone who has, then this might be the place for you. Volunteer have the ability to interact with people who have had COPD, heart attacks, and other heart diseases.
