The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Volunteers are currently needed to assist with a variety of positions within Legacy Emanuel Medical Center. We place volunteers throughout the hospital to help support patients, staff, and visitors with non-medical needs.
The Hospital Unit Volunteer will act as a liaison between the nursing staff, patients, and families by providing excellent customer service. Responsibilities will include answering phones and patient call lights, greeting a directing patient visitors, rounding on appropriate patients and offering non-medical support, inventorying and stocking supplies, cleaning and organizing unit areas, and other special projects as requested by unit supervisor.
Volunteer placement will be determined by an interview, which will assess the candidate’s qualifications, interests, availability, and current needs of the hospital.
