Spiritual care provides a deeper level of compassion and understanding without religious or any other biases. It provides a safe non-judgmental environment where patients are able express their spiritual needs. Beyond
expressing spiritual needs, another part of spiritual care is meeting those needs through attentively listening, tactile consolation, or chaplain services and beyond.
