All positions except setup and breakdown are 4 hour shifts: 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. or 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Volunteers need to arrive approximately 1/2 hour before your shift starts to check in and get “trained”. Expect to check in for your shift at 8:30 (for a.m.) or 12:30 (for p.m.) to get your assignment briefing.
Friday evening (September 19th at 5 pm to 6:30 pm) crew needed to set up chairs, move in supplies, paper forms, equipment, etc. Some lifting involved volunteers should be able to lift between 15-30 pounds.

Check-In: (FOUR [2 in am/2 in pm], one bilingual in each two person shift)
Two persons at front entrance/desk to greet and check in patients with appointments. Patient will identify themselves, check in personnel will find previously completed appointment forms, have patient sign two of the forms, put their name on the waiting list, direct them to the waiting room, and pass on the completed forms to the Client Escort Coordinator. Check in folks will also check folks out as they leave (simply mark them as checked out on the sign in sheet).
Vitals: (TWO [one in am/one in pm])
Take and record blood pressure, pulse, temperature) using automated equipment. Can be trained prior to shift. Record vitals on patient form (get from patient coordinator).
Client Escort Coordinator: (TWO [one in am/one in pm])
Using completed patient forms (from check in folks), assigns patient to a doctor, assign a patient to a client escort, have escort introduce themselves to patient and make sure escort: 1) gets patient’s vitals done and recorded on forms; and 2) gets patient to exam room at the appointment time. Coordinator will also have to track when a patient leaves exam room (reported to Coordinator by Escort) so we know what doctors are available for their next appointment.
Client Escorts: (18 [nine in am/nine in pm])
Bring each client from medical queue waiting area to exam rooms on time per Client Escort coordinator’s instructions. Escort client to exam room and stand by to take client back to check out (if no follow up necessary) or to VIM personnel (for follow-up). Check-in can also provide information on prescriptions if patient has received a prescription. Upon completion of escorted client’s needs and getting them checked out, report to Client Escort Coordinator for next patient.

Looking for bilingual volunteers (Spanish/English) to help clients converse with the doctors and nurses as needed. Interpreters will be ‘on call’ next to the exam rooms. Some proficiency with medical terminology would be helpful, but is not required.
