MPLS VA Health Care System is looking for active, detailed oriented individuals who remain calm in stressful situations to assist with running supplies on our current COVID inpatient units. Interested individuals ideally have a medical/clinical background, however, this is a non-clinical position - it does not require you to have medical training and you will not be involved in any direct COVID patient care.
Potential duties include:
*Assisting with monitoring call lights and telehealth monitors identifying which rooms/staff need assistance.
*Handing off needed items from supply cupboard, carts and/or closet from the hallway to staff in patient doorways.
*Assisting with keeping supply cupboards, carts and closet fully stocked.
*Becoming familiar with supply, linen and nutrition closets.
*Delivering meal trays from meal cart to patient doorways during meal times.
*Learning the tube system, pulling sent items and delivering to rooms.
*Assisting with errands to other areas of the facility.
With current OSHA and VA safety policies and procedures during the COVID pandemic, all Volunteers are required to wear a medical face mask. Additionally, Volunteers assisting in this role will be provided with a face shield that will be required to be worn, along with their face mask, for the duration of their shift. Hospital issued scrubs will also be provided as part of this role's uniform. VHA Directive 1193 requires that Volunteers in this role be COVID-19 vaccinated.
