Volunteers are people who give of their time, without expectation of pay, to assist with patient and non-patient care in medical facilities. OASIS volunteers add to the comfort and satisfaction of patients, associates and visitors.
What options are available for volunteers in a hospital setting and how does it affect patient care?
We are currently building our team of volunteers at OASIS to serve in a variety of areas. Volunteers assist in just about every department of the hospital. We interview each potential volunteer and do our best to match them to an appropriate area that will challenge them, interest them and make them feel like an integral part of our team. Our volunteers help us by performing administrative services such as computer projects, copying, faxing, and other office duties. They also serve on our nursing floors by assisting with patient and family needs, stocking supplies or answering patient call lights.
We’ve provided a few examples of areas in need of volunteers. All volunteer assignment areas are subject to availability.
- Administrative Services
- Information Desk
- Nursing Floors
- Pastoral Care
- Paws for Patients
