Society for Healthcare
Are any of you responsible for spiritual care/chaplains at your hospital? I just learned that our chaplains will begin reporting to me in July and have been challenged to develop a 'We Care' program for our employees. If you have this responsibility, I would appreciate hearing about any special programs you coordinate with your chaplains for the benefit of the employees. Thank you!
I am responsible to bring volunteer chaplains on board, but they report to our paid chaplain.
I onboard all volunteers including spiritual care. If i interview a candidate and find they are seeking a spiritually based opportunity, I forward their application onto the chaplain. After onboarding, the chaplain does added training as they have the specific educational background. The spiritual care volunteer team reports to the paid spiritual care employee. I remain keeper of the documents. (as a side note: our chaplain has resigned and we are in the process of interviewing and will hire a new spiritual care employee - so this information is very timely and most helpful). Thank you all for sharing.
