Volunteer Application

Homeland’s compassionate care would not be the same without the support of our kind and generous volunteers. No medical knowledge is required to be a Homeland volunteer, just a kind heart, good sense of humor, good judgment, dependability and a little bit of your time.

If you are interested in volunteering, please submit an application here.

I have been asked by Homeland Center to affirm/reaffirm my commitment made at the time of my assignment to protect the confidentiality of health information. I understand that Homeland reminds its employees and volunteers of their confidentiality obligations on a periodic basis to help ensure compliance, due to the significance of this issue. By my signature below, I acknowledge that I made the commitment set forth below at the time of my assignment, I confirm my past compliance with it, and I reaffirm my continued obligation to it.

Homeland has a legal and ethical responsibility to safeguard the privacy of all patients and protect the confidentiality of their health information. In the course of my assignment, I may come into possession of confidential patient information, even though I may not be directly involved in providing patient services.

I understand that such information must be maintained in the strictest confidence. As a condition of my assignment, I hereby agree that, unless directed by my supervisor, I will not at any time during or after my assignment with Homeland, disclose any patient information to any person whatsoever or permit any person whatsoever to examine or make copies of any patient reports or other documents prepared by me, coming into my possession, or under my control, or use patient information, other than as necessary in the course of my assignment.

When patient information must be discussed with other health care practitioners in the course of my work, I will use discretion to ensure that such conversations cannot be overheard by others who are not involved in the patient's care..

I understand that violation of this agreement may result in corrective action, up to and including termination of my employment or volunteer experience.
