I have been volunteering at a hospital for some time. I have been doing tasks such as stocking supplies, clerical work, cleaning equipment, etc. There is not much satisfaction in doing tasks such as this with no interaction with people. Most patient contact is when I pass out water and trays where I get to speak with patients which is nice. Not a whole lot of interaction with staff. I have tried different departments and they are sort of the same in terms of patient and staff interaction. So, I asked the volunteer coordinator if I can do something where I am more involved with people and make a significant contribution. She asked me what I want to do. Well, as far as I know I cannot be involved in patient care and feel very limited in what I can do. What else is there to do that involves interacting with patients and staff as a volunteer where you can make a contribution? Can you please give me some ideas? I really want to do something worthwhile and I feel I have a chance here to do that but only if I bring up something. Please share if you have been able to do something significant as a volunteer. Thank you.
