I understand the need for confidentiality and will not discuss or disclose any identifying information about the patients I am working with, without prior permission from MMRC Coordinator and the client. This includes any reference to names, addresses, or other identifiable information.

I acknowledge the importance of patient confidentiality and pledge my commitment to honor the confidentiality of all patient information even after I am no longer a member of the MMRC. I understand that failure to maintain this confidentiality may result in legal or disciplinary action.

I understand that I have chosen to volunteer with the Mobile Medical Reserve Corps (MMRC) as a medical or non-medical individual and will adhere to the policies and procedures.

I understand that I will be assisting patients with various medical needs, which may entail some risk of personal injury. I certify that I am in good health and physically able to perform this type of assistance.

In the event that the MMRC coordinates accommodations, I understand that they are not responsible or liable for my personal effects and property and that they will not provide lock up or security for any items.  I will hold them harmless in the event of theft, or for loss resulting from any source or cause.  I further understand that I am to abide by whatever rules and regulations may be in effect for the accommodations at that time

I release, discharge, indemnify and forever hold Mobile County Health Department, members of the MMRC Advisory Board, and any other referring agency or organization, together with their officers, agents, servants and employees, harmless from any and all causes of action arising from my participation in this unit, including travel or lodging associated therewith, or any damages which may be caused by one's own negligence.

To protect myself, unit members and the individuals served while representing the Mobile Medical Reserve Corps, I give consent for the Mobile County Health Department to conduct regular background checks. I understand investigation findings are subject to review of the MMRC Coordinator and Advisory Board and will abide by policies established for disciplinary procedures and volunteer dismal/resignation if needed.
