Volunteer Guides are needed to escort Volunteer Musicians from room to room as they play music for patients. Volunteer Guides knock on each hospital room door and ask patients if they feel like hearing music. Each guide is assigned to a specific healthcare facility where they will receive training before beginning.
The Volunteer Guide is the "eyes and ears" of MOC during the Bedside Performance Program as well as the liaison between the hospital and the Volunteer Musician. But most importantly, Volunteer Guides know the protocols, policies, and expectations of the hospitals or healthcare facilities in which they volunteer and are responsible for making sure these guidelines are upheld during the program.
MOC's training process includes an application, phone interview, handbook, orientation, quiz, and confidentiality agreement. In addition, MOC training involves shadowing an experienced guide at least twice. Additionally, each healthcare facility typically requires its own orientation class, ID badge and sometimes immunizations, like TB tests and/or flu shots. In addition, MOC training involves shadowing an experienced guide at least twice.
Volunteers must apply, complete training, and schedule visits through Musicians On Call. MOC requires all volunteers to commit to volunteering once a month for at least one year.
