POSITION DESCRIPTION:

The Emergency Department at St. Paul’s is a very busy and dynamic place. Often families and patients come into the Emergency looking for other locations in the hospital. You must be a VERY outgoing person who likes meeting new people and feel comfortable approaching busy staff and patients/visitors to see how you can assist them. You must be comfortable working with people from all backgrounds. Volunteers ensure that those in the Emergency are there because they need emergency assistance and help the public find other locations throughout the hospital. Volunteers help the staff locate wheelchairs, find clothing for discharged patients, visit with people in the waiting areas and in the patient treatment areas. Volunteers in the Emergency work with all people who enter the Emergency in a non-judgmental and supportive manner.
