Volunteers Make a Difference at COVID-19 Vaccination Clinics
During most of the COVID-19 pandemic, volunteers with the Door County Medical Center (DCMC) Auxiliary have provided support, including serving as monitors at DCMC entrances, where they ensure that everyone entering the facility is wearing a mask and uses hand sanitizer.
Recently, volunteers began assisting with DCMC’s vaccination clinics by greeting people as they enter the facility, directing them to registration areas, guiding them to waiting areas for 15-minute observation periods after they’ve been vaccinated, and sanitizing chairs, tables and wheelchairs. The support of Auxiliary volunteers has freed up nurses and other staff members to more efficiently run the vaccination clinics.
In addition, the Door Way Gift Shop has reopened, and Auxiliary volunteers have also returned as main-entrance ambassadors to transport nonambulatory patients to their destinations and to assist elsewhere in the clinic and outpatient surgery areas.
