Important Information for Volunteers

Non-Clinical Volunteers

We appreciate all you do to help us provide quality care for our patients. For your safety, all volunteers should follow-up with staff prior to coming to the clinic, particularly if you have traveled within the past 14 days.

If you have questions or concerns please contact Cheryl White at 814-231-4043. Please continue to check our web site for updates on office hours and scheduling which will be posted each Friday by 6PM.

Clinical Volunteers

CVIM is working diligently to establish policies and procedures for handling patients during this time. First and foremost, we want to gauge the comfort level of our physicians and dentists to continue seeing patients. If you are uncomfortable continuing to see patients during this time, please let me know so we can plan accordingly.

Schedules are being evaluated to prioritize when patients will be seen. Nurses are reviewing patient treatment plans and rescheduling those patients who can be postponed for 1-2 months. Patients who need to be seen now will continue on their current schedule. We are communicating with patients to request that those with fever, respiratory symptoms and travel to affected areas (either domestic or international) reschedule their appointments and not come into the clinic.

We will be asking you to order refills for patients who need routine medications. A 3-month supply of medications will be given to all patients with the exception of a few behavioral health patients that our team recommends getting a shorter supply.

Please continue to look for information from CVIM in the coming weeks and days. Contact Ray Nungesser or Kristi Mattzela with questions or concerns.
