Workforce / Volunteer Issues

 

During an emergency, localities and health care facilities may need to supplement their workforces to adequately protect the public’s health and care for patients. To continue providing high-quality patient care, health care facilities that use volunteers should ensure that volunteer staff are appropriately credentialed before granting them privileges to provide services. GNYHA provides resources to assist members in preparing for the need to staff or provide volunteers in the event of an emergency.
