Chaperone: A current or former health professional whose role is to independently observe the examination/procedure undertaken by the provider to assure the patient of the professional nature of the encounter as well as provide objective information if necessary.
A Chaperone is:
- Sensitive to the patient's confidentiality
- Prepared to reassure the patient.
- Familiar with the procedures involved in the relevant examination.
Prepared to raise concerns about a provider if misconduct occurs
- Role of the Chaperone: The chaperone must understand that they are responsible for observing the appropriateness of both the provider and patient behavior and actions. Chaperones should discretely minimize attention to themselves by incorporating professional dignity and respect.

About Orlando VA Medical Center
13800 Veterans Way, Orlando, FL 32827, US
Orlando VA Voluntary Service is committed to the development of volunteer programs in support of quality, Veteran focused care through the recruitment of volunteers, utilization of community resources, and active involvement and engagement of community stakeholders, with our Veterans. On March 3, 1865, a month before the Civil War ended, President Abraham Lincoln authorized the first-ever national soldiers’ and sailors’ asylum to provide medical and convalescent care for discharged members of the Union Army and Navy volunteer forces. The asylum was the first of its kind in the world to provide civilian medical care to Veterans of temporary volunteer forces. This is where the VA originated from.
Today’s Veterans Health Administration (VHA) originated during the Civil War as the first federal hospitals and Domiciliaries ever established for the nation’s volunteer military forces.
Our goal is to ensure that the volunteer experience at the OVAMC is as rewarding to the volunteer as it is beneficial to the patients, families, visitors, and caregivers.
Our Volunteers provide important functions throughout the OVAMC to help make our patients’ visits a more enjoyable one. Through the on-boarding process each volunteer’s talents and skills are closely matched with one of our wide variety of assignments. To learn more about this process and how you can begin to serve our nation’s Veterans at the OVAMC
We'll work with your schedule.
