    Do you have volunteers in your ED? If so, what do they do? Our CEO would like volunteers to round in the ED waiting room, does anyone do that?

    Hi Denise,

    Our ED volunteers round in the daily under the supervision of the charge nurse. They assist by keeping an orderly waiting room by informing patients when they are next in line to be seen.  I can send you a copy of the service description.
