Volunteers who work directly with patients should be physically fit and have stable balance. A volunteer may be asked to help a staff member assist an unstable participant with the exercise equipment.
Each volunteer must complete an orientation session and demonstrate the ability to work with the equipment and support the program in its entirety.
Volunteers are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of all proprietary or privileged information regarding the FitSteps program, patients and/or staff members. A volunteer must refrain from making any recommendations concerning patient treatment or share their personal opinions about existing physicians within our community.
Because of the access to confidential patient records, we require background checks.
