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.
