Question PEME - Hearing Test - RCCL

Hello all!

So I have a few questions I wonder if anyone can help me with.

I have taken the PEME at an approved RCCL location. In my new hire guide it says that all the paperwork should be filled out completely, and failure to do so may result in rejection at the gangway.

There's a few things missing...

1. No signatures for "witness" on FORM A.
Q: Who is referred to as witness? Do the doctors onboard sign this?

2. They did not preform a hearing test.
Q: Is it not needed to be done if I am in the Shore Excursion Department?

3. They never asked for proof of my vaccination history.
Q: Is a Vaccination Certificate that I obtained in 2012 sufficient?

I know these questions should be answered directly from the company rather than an online forum but I am getting desperate as my Onboarding Coordinator cannot look at my medical because of a Privacy Policy, and the [email protected] is still yet to reply after a week.

TIME IS RUNNING OUT AND I WANT MY PEME TO BE RIGHT!

Please no opinionated answers only those who know 100% the answers to what I have.

Thank you all!

[QUOTE=0hCanada;1521931]Hello all!



1. No signatures for "witness" on FORM A.
Q: Who is referred to as witness? Do the doctors onboard sign this? I seem to remember this was done at the doctors office, by someone else other than the examining doctor (the nurse doing initial tests?) Can you go back to get this?

2. They did not preform a hearing test.
Q: Is it not needed to be done if I am in the Shore Excursion Department? I'm looking at my form from a couple years ago - Mine says 'whisper test' Yes/No, and then if abnormal, do audiogram. Was 'yes' checked? Not sure about requirements as I've always gotten a hearing/sight test

3. They never asked for proof of my vaccination history.
Q: Is a Vaccination Certificate that I obtained in 2012 sufficient? The ones the ship wants is MMR and chicken pox

The most important items should be within a box marked "Required tests"???? My form is from 2011, so I don't know if things have changed. When you sign onto the ship, the ship's nurse has a checklist of the required test box, and just makes sure that every piece of paper is there.

If you haven't heard from PEME, resend your email and put ***URGENT need info by xxdate*** in the header of the mail.

By chance if you already have a ship assignment, you might be able to contact the onboard nurse to ask also?

Thanks for the reply SZ!

You are spot on! I contacted a PEME "Nursing Specialist" via phone and finally got through.

1. It seems that as long as there is the Doctors signature and my own that is what is important (aka from what she told me the "witness" is not necessary.

2. "Whisper test" is pretty much done without you knowing it, while the doctor is talking to you and filling out the forms, he is essentially doing the hearing test with you. If he feels that you are hard on hearing, that is when you will need to take the specialized test.

3. MMR is necessary across the board, yellow fever only if traveling to South America. A Vaccination History printed by your local health region will do!

Yeah, I still got it! Keep us posted to your ship assignment. I'm now doing 'vendor status' short term contracts. Would love to touch base with some cruisemates crew!
