Vaccination Info


I understand that due to my occupational exposure to blood or other potentially infectious materials I may be at risk of acquiring MMR and/or hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection. I have been informed of the risks and benefits of the Hepatitis B vaccine through a video presentation and/or through the brochures made available to me. My questions have been answered to my satisfaction. I further understand that MMR and/or Hepatitis B vaccine does not provide immunity from other forms of Hepatitis or other viruses. I have been given the opportunity to be vaccinated with the MMR vaccine and Hepatitis B vaccine, at no charge to myself and I understand the hepatitis vaccination is not recommended for pregnant women, nursing mothers, or those with a yeast allergy or current infection.


Church Health has a strict policy regarding the influenza vaccine to protect our community, patients, and staff. All clinic volunteers and staff are required to receive a flu vaccine which is available at Church Health. Clinic employees who decline vaccination must wear a mask between December 1 and March 31 when on Church Health property or working off-campus in an official Church Health function. Employees who are allergic to eggs or have a history of Guillain Barre syndrome may decline the vaccine; however, they must present a medical certification from their personal physician of their allergy or past reaction.


HIPAA and Patient Confidentiality


As a volunteer member of the workforce at Church Health, I understand the following in regards to HIPAA and patient confidentiality:

• Church Health has an ethical and legal responsibility to ensure the confidentiality of patient information. As a volunteer member of Church Health's workforce, I also have this responsibility.

• As a condition of my service, I agree to abide by all policies and procedures related to the privacy and security of all patients' protected health information (PHI).

• I will access, use and/or disclose only the PHI that is required for the performance of my job duties. If I have a question about whether or not I should access certain information, I will immediately check with the Privacy Officer or designee.

• Any personal access codes, user IDs, and passwords that I am assigned will be kept confidential at all times and are not to be shared with other workforce members.

• I will not remove any PHI from Church Health, paper or electronic form, without proper approval from the Privacy Officer or designee.

• I will not disclose information pertaining to patients to anyone that is not authorized to receive such information. This includes, but is not limited to, acquaintances, friends, and/or family members.

• I will not disclose PHI on any social media site, such as Facebook or Twitter, or any other internet outlet; including any discussion or description of patients (even if the patient is not specifically identified).

• I will not transmit PHI on any mobile device without using a secure messaging application approved by Church Health. This includes texting PHI to physicians, other workforce members and/or patients. I understand that texting PHI using the regular text messaging application on my phone can result in a HIPAA violation.

• I will not email PHI using a personal email account or any email account not approved by Church Health. If my job requires the use of email, I will follow the specific guidelines established for email by Church Health to use CHSecure in subject line of all email that includes PHI.

• I will not discuss information pertaining to patients with other workforce members including volunteers, unless I have a valid patient care related reason to do so.

• I will not make any unauthorized copies, modifications or deletion of PHI. This includes, but is not limited to, transferring PHI from Church Health's computer system to an unauthorized location, such as a personal computer, USB drive or personal email.

• Upon termination of my volunteer service with Church Health, I will immediately return all property belonging to Church Health. This would include, but is not limited to, keys to the facility, ID badges, documents, electronic files, computer equipment and/or mobile devices.

• I agree that my obligation to maintain confidentiality of PHI will continue after serving as a volunteer at CHURCH HEALTH. I understand that knowingly using or disclosing PHI in violation of the HIPAA Privacy Rule is a criminal offense and I may personally face fines and/or time in jail.

• Any violation of this Agreement may result in disciplinary action, up to and including termination of my volunteer service with Church Health.
