Special Instructions:

Please do not feed or help feed any of the Veterans that are with us. There are some who are on strict choking precautions and cannot eat any solid food or drink liquids. Ask a nurse if you are unsure when serving burgers and drinks. These patients will have a colored beaded necklace on which we will go over at the beginning of the visits.
Please check for contact precaution signs before entering a room to assist a Veteran. If you're unsure please ask a Nurse or RC in charge.
Wear gloves if you're handling the food. And wash your hands.
Remember to sign the roster.
Please make sure a nurse is present while the Veterans are eating.
Please do not take any pictures of the Veterans there. You need permission first.
If you or a group are making goodie bags for the Veterans, please check them first for any type of food, socks and bar soaps and remove them from the bags. Any food could be a potential choking hazard for anyone there. All the Veterans are on controlled diets, so anything with sugar/high in carbs can make them sick .

They are all on Fall precautions so socks can only be the non slippery kind.

Flags & Water:

Water WILL be provided, please bring your own.
