                                                Volunteer Services Agreement
In connection with my activities as a volunteer I agree to hold confidential all information to which I may have access. This includes,
but is not limited to, information on current, former, or prospective patients, employees, students, and scholars. Disclosure of such
information to unauthorized persons is prohibited and may result in my dismissal from the volunteer program and may have
additional legal consequences.

I am aware that Duke Medicine does not provide insurance coverage for volunteers if personally injured or if damage occurs to
personal property while acting as a volunteer. I further understand that I am not entitled to worker’s compensation benefits, health
insurance benefits, or any other benefit available to employees of Duke University. I agree that I will not hold Duke Medicine or its
officers or agents thereof liable for any injury sustained to person or property while acting in a volunteer capacity.

The information provided in this application for volunteering is true, correct and complete. If accepted as a volunteer, any
misstatement or omission of fact on this application may result in my ineligibility for volunteering, or if accepted as a volunteer may
result in my dismissal. I hereby authorize Duke University Hospital to determine my suitability and justification for my role as a
volunteer, to contact any or all of my references.

I authorize schools, employers and references named in this application to provide Duke University Hospital with any relevant
information that may be required to arrive at a decision regarding being accepted as a volunteer. In connections therewith and in
consideration of the undertaking of Duke University Hospital to review this application for volunteering and to consider me for a
volunteer position, I hereby release and acquit Duke University Hospital from any liability whatsoever for any damage which I may
suffer or sustain by reason of its use of any such information.

I understand that should I be offered a volunteer position, I am required to have a volunteer health screen prior to beginning work. The
volunteer health screen is provided by the hospital and includes drug testing. I realize that Duke University Hospital does background
checks when considering applicants for positions and that I will be requested to complete a background check form which requires
date of birth and social security number to facilitate the background check.

I have completed the above information to the best of my ability and understand that any falsification of the information provided
above may disqualify me to become a volunteer.

Are you a Duke University employee? Yes ____ No ____
*NOTE* It is important for all volunteers to be immune to chicken pox, polio, measles, mumps and rubella. Official
documentation of immunity to rubella is required of all volunteers. If you were born after 1/1/57, we must also have
official documentation of immunity to measles and mumps. If you do not have official documentation with you at the
time of your appointment, the nursing staff will perform a titer test (A vaccine titer is the measure, or level, of
antibodies in the blood stream) in order to determine your current immunity.

Suggested Sources for Obtaining Official Documentation of immunity to rubella, measles, and mumps include:
School records, previous employee health records, Health Department records, Military records or Obstetrician or Primary Care records.
