Apart from a hospital Chaplain’s daily pastoral visitation, there are a number of situations and circumstances to which a hospital chaplain will be called such as:
Pertaining to patients and/or family members:
Pertaining to staff personnel:
Chaplains are professionally trained people who are able to respond to the spiritual needs of others relating to issues of forgiveness and reconciliation, meaning of life, trust, faith, hope, love, as well as being proactive when the need for religious ritual is requested.
Whatever may be a person’s spiritual need, the Chaplain sustains the person’s integrity and supports that person in drawing from his/her own resources of spiritual strengths in order to cope with the ensuing circumstances.
Often times, Chaplains are called upon to minister to staff personnel around difficult patient issues as well as varied personal matters.
