HPCCR Volunteers are expected and required to report on time for accepted assignments and in appropriate mental and physical condition for work. It is our intent to provide a healthful, safe, and secure work environment. However, as a volunteer with Hospice & Palliative Care Charlotte Region (HPCCR), I understand that I am volunteering at my own risk whether at an HPCCR facility, third party facility, special event, patient homes, or while commuting. I understand that HPCCR is not liable for any claim that I may have with respect to any bodily injury, personal injury, illness, death, or property damage that may result from volunteer activities whether caused by the negligence of HPCCR or its board of directors, employees, agents or otherwise. I also understand that HPCCR does not assume any responsibility for or obligation to provide financial assistance or other assistance, including but not limited to medical, health, or disability insurance in the event of injury or illness.
