    Staff and Volunteer Confidentiality Statement and Agreement

    All staff and volunteers who have access to personal information have responsibility by which they are bound to the client, Mercy House Ministries and all its agencies, the community and themselves. The agency's clients act in good faith, expecting that all their circumstances and personal matters will remain confidential. Thus, we are obligated both by law and by ethics to honor this trust.

    Though not all inclusive, the following is presented to provide some guidelines concerning the matter of confidentiality. The "Agency" refers to Mercy House Ministries and all of its agencies. The "client" is any person who is served by Mercy House or any of its Agencies.

    1. No identifying information about the Agency's clients (names, addresses, social security numbers, physical disabilities, medical information, etc) should be revealed to anyone outside the agency and only to those in the Agency to whom the information is necessary for the welfare of the client.
    2. Discussing personal circumstances concerning a client, even though names, addresses or social security numbers are not revealed, is also considered a breach of confidentiality. That is, a volunteer might possibly describe in detail personal circumstances and information concerning a client for whom they have provided services, and even though the name and address is not revealed, this descriptive material may jeopardize the client's right to privacy. Thus, the discussion or description of a client's personal information or circumstances in considered detrimental to the client's right to confidentiality.
    3. The fact that a case has been made public through the news media does not alter the fact that the individual still has confidentiality privileges within Mercy House and all of its agencies. Thus, in these situations, confidentiality should still be maintained.

    The named participant below (volunteer and/or staff) agrees to defend, indemnify and hold harmless Mercy House for any demands, claims, lawsuits arising out of or due to the disclosure of confidential information gathered during the course of service for Mercy House. THIS INDEMNITY OBLIGATION INCLUDES INDEMNITY FOR THE NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY, AND/OR FAULT OF MERCY HOUSE.

  • According to the guidelines outlined above, I * agree to respect and maintain the confidentiality of all information obtained during my employment or volunteer period with Mercy House Ministries.

    Volunteer Gift Policy

    We appreciate and cherish each and everything you do for Mercy House and our clients. Your time, love, energy, and effort mean so much and are more than enough. As a volunteer you are under no obligation from Mercy House, the clients, or the staff, to spend any of your personal finances or resources.

    One of the requirements of the Mercy House program is that each client is to complete our birthing/parenting curriculum, which rewards them, upon completion of each section, with gifts and various baby items. This is a major component of our program, and one of the many motivational/teaching tools that we use. Although purchasing gifts, throwing showers, "treating clients", etc is always appreciated, we do ask that you discuss this with the houseparent prior to mentioning any gifts or showers to the client, to ensure the continued effectiveness of this program and its reward
