The Purpose of Visiting
Procedure to become an accredited Mended Hearts Visitor
(You must be a member of Mended Hearts and a registered Volunteer at Riverview Hospital.)
1. Become a Hospital Volunteer
Fill out an application available at the Riverview website at the bottom or obtain one at the hospital.
Return the application to Melinda Nash, Manager of Volunteers.
After approval you will need to attend a hospital employee 1/2 day orientation.
You will need to have appropriate health testing done.
2. Join Mended Hearts through your local chapter
After your application is received at the Mended Hearts Nat'l organizaton (a couple of weeks), log into mendedhearts,org.
Click on "Visitor Training" on the opening page left column.
After completing the session fill out the paperwork and give it to the Visiting Chairman-presently Marv Norman.
You will then accompany and observe a trained Visitor for 2 different visiting days.
Next a trained Visitor will accompany you for 2 visiting days--or until all are comfortable with your abilities.
You will then be an accredited visitor and will be scheduled to do visiting.
