Screw it, latest research, my PPE, (face shield, ineffective)! Karma bit me bad this week, no longer volunteering at UIHC, only volunteer opportunity at this time, backup DAV driver for VETS. Nebraska Division GAF Muster, won’t wear either mask or shield.

Last week, sent an email to my siblings, walking away from UIHC as a volunteer, shifting to DAV (Disabled American Veterans) driver, this is where I belong! It is my own personal observation. This week, had a discussion with DAV & VA Volunteer Coordinators. VA is ramping up for Volunteers to take over shuttle route in town. Understand, I am the 1st Volunteer in the building! The VA coordinator told me, I want/need you, but at this time, we need you as DAV driver, & until other volunteers come back, you are a DAV driver!
This week proved them wrong, After dropping off patients, went to Volunteer Services office & stuffed & sealed envelopes for 2.5 hours, when one of the patients I dropped off came up for a meal ticket, I told her, I was done, she said “hell no” you can give me another half hour while he eats! The office was stressing, 10,000 mailings dropped off to an office responsible for mailing 1500 a day. By example & reflection, I gave them the path for the 10,000 mailings to be completed in 2 days! While working in office, realized they were attempting to reopen Volunteer Services, waiting to see the proposal. I submitted one 6 weeks ago.

This SOF, (stupid old fool) is between a rock & a hard space. Kicked out as a volunteer from VA mid March, adapted late April. Volunteered for 29 shifts, 150 hours at UIHC. From 7/24-9/29 found another way to volunteer at UIHC.
Early August, sent an email to VA volunteer coordinator laying out reintegration of volunteers. This SOF pushed to serve, & became the 1st volunteer back in building as DAV driver. Wasn’t OK with it, pressed for more, given OK to report to Volunteer Service office. 1st day dropped in office on 10/2, office was stressed, normally deal with 2000 mailings a day, Tuesday 12000 dropped. Put to sealing envelopes. Eventually Nurse Manager came to me & asked, you are extremely proficient, where does it come from? I told her, I report to Escort Office, hang my coat, see 4-6 volunteers, go to 3rd floor to sign in, see a single person with a stack of mailings they can’t complete, so I stayed up there to help out. Her reply, was crap, we have 4 people sitting in an office for most of the day.
This week, volunteers back in hospital based upon my guidelines! Want to operate locally, but accept the corner I have painted myself into.
