How soon can I start?
We strive to match your interests, skills and talents with the current needs of the hospital. To ensure proper fit for both the volunteer and the hospital you will meet with our volunteer representative for a Placement Interview. Placement Interviews are scheduled only after a volunteer file is complete including the application and background check information. After the interview, you must complete TB testing through the hospital’s employee health department. Once the TB test results and new volunteer orientation are complete, training will be scheduled.

Orientation
New volunteers must attend a Volunteer Orientation and Information Session. Orientation will cover topics such as Fire Safety, Infection Control and Privacy Policy. This information is required for all healthcare workers, including volunteers, to understand. Additional paperwork will be given to you at this time to comply with these policies.

What kind of training will I receive?
We do everything we can to prepare you for your volunteer role at Baptist Beaumont Hospital. Training is structured to provide each volunteer with the resources, information and skills necessary to serve in their volunteer capacity. On-the-job training will vary depending on placement. Some placements may require specific training classes that address the sensitive nature of the role.
 
How much time do I need to commit?
We appreciate your wanting to spend your valuable time with us. The majority of our volunteer opportunities are 3-4 hour shifts on a weekly or bi-weekly schedule. This is helpful to our nursing and administrative staff with whom volunteers work. However, there are some opportunities with more flexible scheduling such as our Pet Partners  program, Volunteer Patient Advocates, and Clerical volunteers.

What age do I need to be?
Volunteers must be minimum age of 18 and not enrolled in any high school, college or, post graduate program. We support our local high school and college students with Baptist Hospital’s StudentVolunteer Program. If you are a high school student or a college student please see our Student Volunteer Programs page as these programs function differently from others.
