I know this will sound very trival and even dumb but I am so excited because this summer I have signed up to volunteer at a local hospital. This will be my first experience in anything in the medical field and I know I won't get to do much but I'm still very excited. Orientation was last night and I loved it. Sorry but just had to share my excitement.

NOTHING trivial about volunteers. You infact fill a VERY important role. If it were not for volunteers there are MANY patient services that would not exist. You guys are also responsible for raising $$$$ for all those things that we would not otherwise be able to provide. You have taken on a very important job. THANK YOU.
Delivering mail, flowers, giving visitors directions may seem trivial but it is anything but when you are on the receiving end of these things. These are only a few things volunteers do. Who do you think would do this if you did not? Nurses? Then who would take care of the patients when a nurse courtesously walked a visitor to the elevator etc? Or say no one did this and poor Mrs. Jones never got a visit from her dearest friend because she could not find her room and never got the card she sent because no one delivered it.
Seriously, the volunteer is an important job. :kiss
