Item description for The Hospital Visitor's Handbook: The Do's And Don'ts of Hospital Visitation by Neville A. Kirkwood...
Overview Do you want your visit to a loved one or needy person in the hospital to be more meaningful and have spiritual value? This handi-size booklet is the perfect companion. Dr. Kirkwood will show you what to say, and what not to say, how to keenly observe and to be responsive, as well as what to do in the case you should encounter death.
Christian communities are a lot like families, so it s only natural for individuals to show their love and concern by visiting fellow parishioners who are sick in the hospital. But without a bit of information, a well-intentioned visit might bring more harm than good.
In this handy pocket-sized book, Neville Kirkwood, a chaplain with many years experience, offers practical guidelines to make a hospital visit an experience that strengthens the bonds of friendship while nurturing the patient s spiritual health. Included are tips on respecting the patient s needs and moods, communicating effectively, following hospital protocol, and praying for and with those who are confined to the hospital. "
