Great Volunteer Experience
Outpatient Volunteer - Navigator (Former Employee) – Detroit, Michigan – December 21, 2013
A typical day involved meeting patients as they entered the hospital to either introduce them to the cancer institute or direct them to their appointments if they either do not know their destination or are unable to walk.
This job, while unpaid, involved lots of teamwork and communication, as well as requiring good communication skills with patients and employees.
Hardest part would be the actual traveling between parts of the hospital, transporting either supplies or patients. This was part of the DMC and Harper Hospital, so it did involve a lot of walking.
The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting the patients, and making sure they were as comfortable as possible.
