The CPE resident has a unique opportunity to provide crisis ministry in a variety of settings, including five Intensive Care Units (Neurosurgical, Cardiac, Trauma Surgical, Medical/Surgical and Medical). In these settings, the CPE resident provides pastoral care to patients and families as they experience medical care crisis due to unanticipated health deterioration (heart attack, stroke, etc.), acts of violence, accidents, and end of life decisions. Additionally the CPE resident supports the staff serving the critical care units.
Floors 4, 5, and 6 serve a variety of medical/surgical patients, including cardiac, neurology, and medical/surgical trauma. The interdisciplinary team looks to the CPE resident to provide emotional and spiritual support to the patients, families and staff.
