Volunteer Application Form
The process to become a
volunteer at the McCarty Center is as follows:
1) Complete a volunteer
application form. An application and volunteer
handbook may be picked up at the reception desk
at the hospital Monday thru Friday, between
8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. or by downloading to your
computer from the Volunteer Application link above.
Read the handbook and sign and date the last page
of the handbook.
2) Individual volunteers
who will be working in departments where they
may be working directly or indirectly with patients
will undergo a criminal background check before
starting their volunteer duties.
3) You'll need to have
a TB skin test and bring the results with your
application. You can get a TB skin test from
your family physician or, if you're an OU student,
from the Goddard Health Center. This process
takes 3-days from the time you get your injection
until you have to go back and have the injection
4) You'll need a copy of
your shot records to be submitted with your
volunteer application form.
5) You'll need to complete
an on-line HIPAA orientation. HIPAA is the federal
patient privacy act. You can do the orientation
here at the hospital. The HIPAA orientation
takes approximately two hours.
6) Once these first five
items are completed, you'll meet with the volunteer
coordinator for the completion of your orientation
and volunteer assignment. At this time you should
have your completed application form, your signed
volunteer handbook, the results of your TB skin
test, your shot records and your certificate
of completion of the HIPAA orientation ready
to submit to the volunteer coordinator.
