NVHS understands that volunteers may not be aware that a particular action violates the Code of Conduct. If you are unsure, please contact an NVHS staff member for clarification, prior to the action.
Volunteers are expected to comply with the policies, procedures, and standards of NVHS as explained at the beginning of their assignment, at the volunteer orientation and in the volunteer handbook.
If NVHS staff is dissatisfied with a volunteer's performance the first course of action is to communicate that concern to the volunteer. If they are unable to reach an understanding, the Chief Operations Officer will resolve the matter. In most cases, a volunteer will be given sufficient time to respond affirmatively or request reassignment to a more suitable volunteer placement. In some cases, however, immediate action may be required depending upon the severity of the issue.
NVHS is committed to being a diverse organization. It seeks to recognize value and incorporate diversity in its services, policies and operations, service recipients, and paid and volunteer workforce. Diversity includes differences such as age, belief, citizenship, culture, economic level, ethnicity, gender, language, national origin, and philosophy of life, physical ability, physical appearance, race, religion, and sexual orientation.
