The Chaplain's Role
When faced with times of illness, crisis or stress, people often draw closer to their spiritual side. A chaplain has a sacred opportunity to minister to people during these times. With this responsibility, we endeavor to:
- Respect the dignity and privacy of the patient, family and staff.
- Be caring listeners who have been trained to help with the special needs of a hospital patient, family member or staff.
- Work with the healthcare team so that the spiritual needs, as well as medical needs are addressed.
