Being sick or injured can be frightening and emotionally draining. Our SBH chaplains offer emotional and spiritual care for you and your loved ones. They are available to listen, to comfort, and to help you draw upon your personal strengths.
The pastoral care services we offer are non-denominational and independent of any particular religious affiliation. Our chaplains follow the lead of the patient/resident and intervene in ways that are appropriate to the unique needs and desires of the individual. This includes support and help in accessing the patient’s and/or family’s resources through compassionate listening. We respect all religious traditions and welcome the involvement of your home clergy while you are hospitalized. It is also not necessary to belong to a congregation or even consider yourself religious to consult a chaplain.

How Can a Representative Help You?
A patient representative will listen to your concerns, address your needs and help you find solutions to problems. For example, if there is any miscommunication or misunderstanding that leads to conflicts or disagreements involving treatment decisions, the patient representative will assist you by providing a way to find resolutions. Patient representatives are impartial. They provide effective liaisons between patients, their family members, physicians, nurses and all hospital departments.
Questions you may have on topics regarding advance directives, such as healthcare proxy, living wills and DNR (Do Not Resuscitate), can also be addressed through the Patient Relations Office.
Where Can I Find a Patient Representative?
The Patient Relations Office is located on the 2nd floor in the main hospital building. You may call a Patient Representative directly from 9am to 5 pm, Monday-Friday, at 718-960-6121 or 718-960-6353.
If you have an urgent problem during evenings, weekends or holidays, please contact the charge nurse at the nursing station on your floor.
