Ruth, It means so much to me that you, as a Hospice RN, understand the impact that chaplains can have with patients at End of Life. I also value that you recognize that chaplains are able to be with people of all faiths, and accompany those people in their religious traditions. In my estimation that is what good chaplains do - we set our own beliefs aside in order to embody the beliefs of those we serve. I am also grateful that you lifted up the role that chaplains have with nurses and other medical professionals. Absolutely we help medical teams to assess patients, but we also offer spiritual and emotional support to medical professionals. We are there for you too! Blessings on your important work Ruth. Thank you for your ministry.
