Volunteers interact with patients and families and assist staff in reducing the stress which can be caused by hospitalization, illness and pain. Volunteers gain experience of being part of a multidisciplinary healthcare team by rounding on new patients, delivering amenities to alleviate boredom, and giving generously of their time at the bedside. Volunteers may also assist with clerical support on the nursing units. Volunteers serve Monday-Friday afternoons.
