To qualify as a Volunteer at Huntsville Hospital, we ask that adult volunteers attend a personal interview with our Volunteer Placement Coordinator, (or the Director of Volunteer Services); complete an application and orientation packet; and be prepared to undergo a criminal background check. Please note that submitting an application to Volunteer Services does not obligate Huntsville Hospital to provide a volunteer placement, nor are volunteers obligated to accept the position offered.
Depending upon your placement location and affiliation, you will be asked to purchase and wear a uniform. It is also mandatory for all new volunteers to undergo Terbuculin Skin Testing (PPD). This skin test is performed in the Employee Health Office at no charge to volunteers. You will also be asked to update your file, including a review of updated policies and procedures as required. From time to time, you will be asked to attend training sessions as a requirement of your affiliation with Huntsville Hospital.
Orientation and Training Materials will include a review of Huntsville Hospital Policies and Procedures, Safety Training, Evacuation Training, HIPAA & Confidentiality Requirements, and assignment-specific training as required. You may also be trained on the safe operation of a wheelchair, on the use of certain computer systems and other equipment as required by your assignment.
