    This seems like a bad idea. Who are these volunteers? Have they had a background check? Do they have a criminal record? Just imagine a volunteer sexually or physically assaults a Bon Secours employee. I’d say there’s quite a liability issue at hand. Get it together people.

      I am a nurse and know first hand what will happen if you can’t get to work because of snow. Corrective action will be taken against you. These facilities show no mercy. With all of the money that hospitals and long term care facilities are making they should be able to have their own fleet of 4 wheel drive vehicles at the ready to get essential personnel to work.

    All volunteers check your insurance policy / agent before you do this. Most personal lines policies prohibit you acting as a taxi or livery service and by doing so you expose yourself to third party liability for the nurse and the public as well as to the damage of your own vehicle. Leave this to the taxi’s.

    Va is in a state of emergency …you can make the best efforts you can to get there to help others but safety first…the law states that your employer can not force you to get to work..be careful out there
