Volunteers in nursing homes.
Volunteers in nursing homes.—
It is the intent of the Legislature to encourage the involvement of volunteers in nursing homes in this state. The Legislature also acknowledges that the licensee is responsible for all the activities that take place in the nursing home and recognizes the licensee’s need to be aware of and coordinate volunteer activities in the nursing home. Therefore, a nursing home may require that volunteers:
Sign in and out with staff of the nursing home upon entering or leaving the facility.
Wear an identification badge while in the building.
Participate in a facility orientation and training program.
This section does not affect the activities of state or local long-term care ombudsman councils authorized under part I.
