Agreements, Acknowledgements, and Disclosures

Volunteerism:

  • As a volunteer, I understand that I will not be reimbursed for my services and I will regard my volunteer assignment as a serious commitment. I will respect the confidentiality of all information available to me through my volunteer position. Should my conduct or performance be deemed unsatisfactory for any reason, I agree to accept release from my volunteer assignment.

Health clearance:

  • (If applicant is a minor) I hereby voluntarily give my permission for my child to enroll in the Junior Volunteer Program at Methodist Healthcare System, and to take the necessary instructions for his/her work. I understand that Methodist Healthcare System is not to be held responsible in case of accident. I also understand that my child will be required to adhere to safety standards and other regulations stated in Hospital policies, including a TB skin test before volunteering. 
  • Prior to the start of my volunteer service, I must have a TB skin test (T-SPOT), which Employee Health will provide. I will be notified when I have passed  my background check so that I may begin obtaining health clearance. I will bring the following documentation to Employee Health when I come in for the test:
  •   Documentation of any previous TB skin test within the last five years. 
  • Prior immunization records that should include: 
    • Documentation of prior vaccination for mumps, measles and rubella (MMR)-- series of 2 vaccines.
    •  Documentation of the Hepatitis B –series of 3 vaccines. 
    • Documentation of the VZV (Chicken Pox) vaccine - series of 2 vaccines.
    • Documentation of TDAP vaccine for tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis (whooping cough).
    • Documentation of influenza vaccine during the flu season. (MHSO provides this vaccine free of charge to volunteers.) 
    • Documentation of COVID-19 vaccination
  • Exceptions to TB Screening:
    • Volunteers who have tested positive for any reason are required to provide a copy of their x-ray report from their physician stating that they have negative results.
    • Volunteers who are presently taking steroids are NOT required to take the test, but are required to provide a statement from their physician stating they are taking steroids to excuse them from taking the TB test. (Steroids result in test inaccuracies).

Background Check:

  • Pursuant to the requirements of the Fair Credit Reporting Act, notice is given that a consumer report may be requested in connection with my application for volunteer services. If my application is denied for volunteer services, either wholly or partly, because of information contained in a consumer report, a disclosure will be made to me of the name and address of the consumer reporting agency making such report. I will also receive a copy of the report and a statement of my consumer rights. A consumer report may consist of employment records, educational verifications, licensure verification, driving history, previous address and other public records relative to criminal charges. A credit report will not be requested unless it is pertinent to the functions of the position for which I am applying.
  • I have read the above notice and understand what it means. I hereby authorize the procurement of a consumer report for volunteer service purposes.

Orientation: 

  • Successful completion of orientation, which includes a safety video and assessment, is mandatory before beginning volunteer service at MHSO.
