Confidentiality

 

Information that a colleague or volunteer obtains or hears about the care and condition of patients is confidential. Any personal information about patients or their relatives is confidential as is information concerning salaries, personnel files, and other official records and reports. Such items should not be discussed with other colleagues or volunteers unless it is necessary in the performance of hospital duties. A colleague or volunteer should NEVER discuss such things outside the hospital.

Unauthorized disclosure of confidential information will result in disciplinary action.

Benefits of Auxiliary Membership

 

As a member of the Auxiliary, you belong to the St. Joseph’s Hospital team – a team of dedicated individuals committed to continuing the healing mission of the Hospital Sisters of St. Francis that began over 130 years ago. Your role is just as important as the role played by every other member of that team.

Members of Auxiliary are part of an organization that serves under the auspices of St. Josephs’ Hospital. The executive power of the Auxiliary is vested in an Executive Committee that conducts the affairs of the Auxiliary in accordance with Bylaws of the Auxiliary. All actions of the Auxiliary Executive Committee are subject to the approval of the Hospital’s Board of Directors or the Hospital Administrator.

The general membership of the Auxiliary meet at least once a year to conduct business and/or to elect and install new Executive Committee members. The meeting is often a luncheon meeting provided by the hospital for all members.

The second week of May is National Hospital Week, where various hospital team groups are honored for their service to the hospital. Auxiliary members are treated to an appreciation luncheon.

In addition to the National Hospital Week luncheon, Auxiliary members are welcome to attend appreciation events sponsored periodically throughout the year by the hospital for employees, Medical Staff and volunteers.
