Heartland Community Health Center Confidentiality Policy

Access to Confidential Records

In order for Heartland to provide a responsible and professional service to patients, it is necessary for patients to divulge extensive personal information. The clinic respects the confidentiality of patient records and with the exceptions of situations listed below, shares information about patients only among the professional medical staff. The right of confidentiality applies not only to written records, but also to video, film, pictures or the use of apatient’s name in agency publications

All records are considered the property of the clinic and not the clinic staff, volunteers or patients. In order to provide a service in the patient’s self-interest, outside medical records may also be assessed. Records are not available for review by patients.

Limits of Confidentiality

1. Information will be released to other medical personnel only upon presentation of an authorized ‘Consent to Release Information’ form appropriately signed by the patient.

2. Only authorized members of the medical staff will have access to files to assess and evaluate the performance of the clinic.
3. Information shall only be provided to law enforcement officials of the courts pursuant to a valid and enforceable subpoena. All volunteers and staff are responsible for staying abreast of such reporting requirements of the law and shall always comply with mandated procedures.
4. Information shall be provided to clinic legal counsel in the event of litigation or potential litigation involving the clinic.
5. If the clinic staff and/or volunteers receive any information indicating that a patient may be dangerous to him or her self or to others, necessary steps may be taken to protect the appropriate party.

I have read and understood the above document which states the clinic policy with respect to confidentiality of patient records. I agree to program participation under the conditions set forth.

• Volunteers are required to perform administrative duties as well as clinic support.
• A minimum of 3 office volunteer shifts are required prior to service in medical duties.
• Volunteers seeking a letter of recommendation are required to volunteer for a minimum of two semesters of service prior to consideration for recommendation eligibility.

I agree to these confidentiality terms

Heartland Community Health Center Statement of Faith

Heartland's staff and leadership believe in Christian principles.

As a volunteer in the Heartland, I pledge to support the staff and leadership who follow these beliefs. I will not undermine these beliefs in any way. If questions of philosophy, theology or ethics should arise with any patient, I will refer the patient to one of the staff members.

Mission Statement: To transform the health and lives of those in need through the love of Jesus Christ

Volunteer Responsibilities:

New volunteers will be asked to first work on the administrative side before moving to the medical side to better understand clinic flow. Volunteers may be asked to work in various programs, such as the Early Detection Works, Diabetes Care and Prevention or Meds by Mail programs. Heartland reserves the right to dismiss any volunteer from duties as a volunteer. Volunteer duties may include any or all of the following and other duties as needed:

Administrative:
• Filing charts and records using the Sample Chart as an example
• Assembling patient registration materials
• Pulling charts for use by medical staff or for appointments
• Waiting room maintenance and straightening
• Side-work, including restocking and trash

Medical:
• Pharmacy inventory, stocking and maintenance
• Exam room maintenance, restocking and cleaning
• Patient check-in, vitals and symptom history
• Basic lab testing and paperwork for lab orders
• Getting medicines and instructions ready for patients

Please provide us with a copy of your medical insurance card and your immunization record. All medical volunteers must be immunized against Hepatitis B and must have had a tuberculosis test within the last year. Completion of Hepatitis B immunizations and tuberculosis test are required before volunteering.

I have read, understand and agree to these statements.
