Anna Jaques Hospital
HOST: Cheryl Satryb

Brenda Leblanc, Lawrence General
Mary Iodice, Lahey
Donna Silva, Lahey
Cheryl Satryb, Anna Jaques


  • Reference Checking: Only a few of us do reference checking, not always valid.
  • JCAHO - did you have a visit this year? Lahey is expecting theirs any time now. It was mentioned by Brenda during her visit they mentioned drug testing for Pharmacy and Transport volunteers. This isn't done at every hospital. Brenda shared her job description for her Pharmacy volunteers - attached.
  • 2017 NEADHVS meeting October 27th. Only Brenda said she'd be attending
  • Volunteer Director/coordinator position descriptions. We shared some copies of the different descriptions. Brenda was gathering this info. Mary Iodice will send theirs to Brenda.
  • Volgistics question - regarding when a volunteer terminates and then returns a few years later - how do you adjust the years of service? Looks like you need to adjust yourself. Not sure this is an option. Let us know if you know!!
  • OTHER: Even though there were only 4 of us, it's always nice to chat amongst ourselves. Always fun! :)
  • NEXT MEETING: Post Holiday Yankee Swap! Bring a $10 gift :) Thursday, January 11th 9:30-11:30 - Jillian Buttaro will host at Winchester Hospital, in the ACR (Administrative Conference Room) on the first floor.
