Patient Care Program
As a patient care volunteer, you will gain hands-on experience on a hospital nursing unit. Volunteers are trained to feed, transport, provide comfort and communicate with patients of all ages. They will be responsible for pharmacy and lab rounds, responding to call bells, and patient and family requests. Working as part of the nursing team, volunteers have an opportunity to enhance the quality of life of hospitalized patients. This program is ideal for volunteers considering a health profession.
