While setting up a new hospital, people are more oriented towards planning the structure of the hospital and concentrating on the medical and health care facilities that are to be provided to the people. Often the authorities forget about the healing aspect and the underlying spiritual concepts. From time immemorial healing and spirituality have been interconnected and they go hand in hand.
“When it comes to the issue of spirituality and healing hospitals, the health care givers in the hospitals consider the emotional side. Chapman (2003) is of the view that people do not change into one dimensional beings when they become patients the patients emotional needs increase when the body is in a weak constitution. Chapman gives a model in which total loving care is equal to Higher Standard. In this view, there is the patient there is the disease and there is the humanity shown by the health care giver.
Humanity in this model is the healthcare givers feeling about the disease. Chapman (2003) quotes former vice president Hubert H. Humphrey.
