CHA’s upcoming California Hospital Volunteer Leadership Conference will address a range of topics important to health care professionals and volunteers. One session will share how a volunteer services department is responding to new requirements related to discharge of homeless patients. Attendees will learn about the law’s intricacies and how volunteers can support their hospital’s efforts to provide clothing, shoes and other items required for discharge. 

Another session will share developments in compliance and human resources, featuring insight on operational issues such as criteria to distinguish a volunteer from an employee, whether to conduct criminal background checks, and issues that may arise from student and intern workforces. 

The conference will be held Feb. 11-13 in at the Hyatt Regency Sacramento. To register, visit the conference website.
