Volunteer Requirements
Volunteers working at Bergen Regional Medical Center must fulfill the following:

Dress Code – The quality of patient/resident care is often judged by  the appearance of staff and volunteers, it is essential that you dress in a professional manner. Volunteers are required to wear their ID Badge at all times.

Immunizations –Volunteers are required to have a Mantoux (PPD) test annually. This test is performed at no cost to the volunteer. Influenza vaccinations are available in the Fall of each year free of charge.

Customer Service – Patients and Residents come to us with diverse backgrounds, apprehensions, social and medical needs. Healthcare facilities themselves are strange and sometimes frightening places; we must be sensitive to patient and resident needs at all times. Demonstrating the Medical Centers core values is important in every contact with patients, families and friends.

Meal Vouchers are provided to all volunteers who work 4 or more hours in one day.
