Hospice Austin is required by our accrediting agency (Community Health Accreditation Program) to provide each volunteer with annual education about privacy rights, infection control, and patient rights. Because this is mandatory, in order to continue as an active Hospice Austin volunteer, we must receive this completed form back from you. Please read and answer the questions below.

I understand my obligation to patients' privacy under the HIPAA Privacy Rule. *
Suspected fraud, abuse, neglect, and exploitation - if you have any suspicions that a patient is being abused, neglected, or exploited by anyone (including a Hospice Austin employee), you must report your suspicions to the volunteer coordinator immediately.
