Holiday Changes

Hello Volunteers:

Just a reminder that the PERC will be closed this Friday, December 24, and next Friday, December 31. In addition, the PERC will close at 1:00pm Monday - Thursday, December 27-30.

Because of the 1:00pm closing next week, we have made arrangements for patients who wish to checkout either an iPod or a Laptop to be able do so and keep the device past our 1:00pm early closing.

Please complete the appropriate form for the iPod/Laptop and collect a valid driver’s license. Let the patient know that we will be closing at 1:00 and that you will need to know where they will be (Main Infusion Area, Infusion Area 2, or the Med Inn only) in order to return their license. If they are carrying a cell phone, it would be helpful to have that phone number to contact them.

Prior to completing the normal PERC closing procedures, you should take the Driver’s License to the infusion area the patient designated and give to the attendant at the nurses’ station. The staff member should be aware that patients may be returning devices to her; however, if the attendant has questions you cannot answer, please ask her to speak with her supervisor.

Once you have delivered the license(s) to the appropriate infusion area, please page Kathy Bishop (936-6266, Page ID# 30180) or her assistant, Melissa Dymond (936-6266, Page ID# 32605) and let her know the location(s) where the device(s) will be returned. Please Note: You will not need to deliver the license(s) to the Med Inn. Call Kathy or Melissa and they will come to the PERC and retrieve.

Any devices retrieved by Kathy or Melissa will be delivered to the PERC the following morning at which time you will need to clean and charge. If you have any questions, please let me know. We are not expecting to have many checkouts, but we want to be prepared!

Thanks again for volunteering during this holiday week. Your dedication to patients and families is greatly appreciated!
